Joe Moore, Alderman of Chicago's 49th Ward ad...

Please join me as I head to Sheridan Road after work on Friday to sample some gooey, decadent macaroni and cheese at a fun recent addition to the Rogers Park restaurant scene. Follow Me on Friday to Midnight Mac & Cheeserie, 6981 N. Sheridan (at Lunt) this Friday, December 1st, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. Join me in trying some of the delicious and creative ways Midnight Mac & Cheeserie prepares what is America’s favorite comfort food. To compliment the Mac and Cheese, I will be offering up free beverages, including beer, wine or soft drinks. Owner Antony Van Zyl founded Midnight Mac & Cheeserie as a carryout and delivery business only, offering a variety of mac and cheese options. But on opening day, which saw a line around the corner and a complete sellout of every single noodle, Antony realized he had discovered a huge untapped market–a hankering for the ultimate gooey comfort food. Antony decided to go for broke and transformed the carryout and delivery business into a traditional sit-down restaurant, located in the site that previously housed the Growling Rabbit. As the name indicates, Midnight Mac & Cheeserie offers all variations of America’s favorite comfort food. Meals start at $7.50 for a “Baby Mac” (one pound) and $9.50 for a “Mama Mac” (two and a half pounds). You start with a base of elbow noodles and cheddar cheese and customize from there with additional toppings, including a choice of eight different types of cheeses, nine veggie options, nine protein choices. You can then add six other customized options, including an extra buttery crumb topping, a Cayenne pepper and red pepper flake topping, and truffle oil. Antony suggests several Mac & Cheese combos, such as “Antonia’s Decadent Lobster Dish,” which brings together Gruyere cheese and lobster–or Sam’s Sizzling Steak, a spicy recipe that blends pepper jack with Sriracha steak and ​jalapeños. In short, Midnight Mac & Cheeserie offers decadence in a bowl! Antony welcomes customers to dine in from 4:00 to 10:00 p.m. on weekdays and midnight on Friday and Saturday. Deliveries are available until 2:00 a.m. through GrubHub or Uber Eats. After sampling some of the delicious mac and cheese combos Friday night, make sure to order some mac and cheese your way to dine in or take home with you. In other words, “Let’s Get Cheesie!” Follow Me on Friday is one of my efforts to encourage my constituents to sample some of the 49th Ward’s finest restaurants, pubs, businesses and festivals. About once or twice a month on my Facebook page, I post the name and location of a local restaurant, pub, business or festival where I’ll be hanging out after work on Friday. The establishment offers specials for all my Facebook followers and their friends. It’s a great opportunity for you to check out one of the fine local 49th Ward businesses you may not have visited before. Previous Follow Me on Friday locations include Ethiopian Diamond II, 7537 N.
