More that's new downtown: Mac & Cheeza and Yojie
A restaurant aiming for mac 'n' cheese fanatics, Mac & Cheeza, is
officially open downtown, serving up cheesy pasta in take-away foil containers (there are a few seats in the diminutive space on 8th Street). Choose a size: Baby Mac, Momma Mac, Daddy Mac and Mac Daddy. Then choose your noodle (regular macaroni or rice flour macaroni) and your sauce (cheese or soy). Additions include collard greens, black olives, peas, jalapenos, mushrooms, hot links, choriza, tuna. It gets topped with either a cheese blend or spicy toasted walnuts.
