As if we need an excuse to indulge in a little cheesy pasta, July 14 is National Mac ’N Cheese Day. Whether you’re Team Breadcrumbs, want an upgraded version of your childhood favorite, or are looking for a little added heat, these seven spots have cheese-pull-worthy bowls at the ready.

Dig Inn

112 S Ridge St, Rye Brook; 914.305.8463

Yes, it’s a chain, and we’re fine with that when the mac ’n cheese is this good. Dig Inn applies its carefully sourced ethos to its mac, made with a custom, three-cheese blend from Vermont’s cultish Jasper Hill Farm. The kicker: a thick layer of crispy golden breadcrumbs.

Exit 4 Food Hall

153 E Main St, Mount Kisco; 914.241.1200

If you thought one version of mac ’n cheese was mouthwatering, then take a look at four. Not only does this Mount Kisco bistro offer a traditional wood-fired version sprinkled with breadcrumbs, it also offers (ready?): a lobster iteration with gruyere, Reggiano, and cheddar over lumache pasta; mac ’n cheese bites covered in a creamy cheese sauce with fresh herbs; and mac ’n cheese doughnuts with maple bacon dipping sauce on the side. Talk about scrumptious!

Looking for the most creative versions of mac ’n cheese known to man? Look no further than Mt. Kisco Diner for a truly inventive concoction: the Mac Wrap. This dish pairs everyone’s favorite cheese-laden pasta with slices of breaded chicken cutlet, all wrapped up in a fluffy tortilla. Consider a mac-inspired app with the bacon mac ’n cheese, consisting of crispy bacon and cheesy pasta married in the ultimate quesadilla, or the fried mac ’n cheese balls with a crispy coating, served over marinara sauce.

Pepe’s Place

560 North Ave, New Rochelle; 914.632.7373

This hole-in-the-wall soul-food restaurant in downtown New Rochelle has only a few seats, but that didn’t stop Southern Living from naming in the best mac ’n cheese in New York. Pepe’s iteration, made with cave-aged reserve cheddar, is a winner in our book.

Southern Table

39 Marble Ave, Pleasantville; 914.618.3355

Enjoy a creamy blend of cheddar, gouda, and pepperjack over cavatappi pasta with seasoned breadcrumbs and scallions for this classic American dish. The addition of fried shrimp, bacon, jalapeños, or fried chicken adds a personalized touch to a homemade favorite and takes this super-sized serving of cheesy goodness to a truly addictive place. Plus, there will probably be enough to take home and have leftovers for days. Or not, no judgement.
