Every chef has a version of ultra-comforting macaroni and cheese, with nuances ranging from how many gooey cheeses can fit into a single batch to crunchy toppings like sourdough bread crumbs. Here, where to get the best mac and cheese in the country. —Justine Sterling
Chef John Berryhill loves bacon so much that he opened the breakfast-and-lunch-only Bacon, which serves eight varieties of the crispy meat. But it’s at his original restaurant, Berryhill & Co., that his signature house-cured bacon truly shines in the baked mac and cheese. The mini gratin contains penne, tomatoes, cremini mushrooms and four cheeses (provolone, cheddar, Monterey Jack and Parmesan), with bacon as a must-have option. johnberryhillrestaurants.com
