Homeroom Mac and Cheese Restaurant - Oakland, CA
You gotta love a place that serves its drinks in Mason jars and has a menu that is almost entirely made up of macaroni and cheese. I could end this post right there, but I'll give you a few details. Homeroom delivers, having taken comfort food to the nth degree in a casual space in Oakland, California. The menu provides wine and beer pairings with each mac n cheese dish, and for my Mexican Mac (chipotle-seasoned), the tempranillo suggestion was perfect.
I can't fail to mention their wonderful appetizers - we tried two of them, Brussels sprouts flecked with bacon (you can order a vegetarian option), and minty, buttery peas. Both were tasty and perfect complements to the very hearty macaroni and cheese main dishes.
Also on the menu are large salads, gluten-free options, and a careful selection of sodas, beers, and wines - there's nothing more to want! Here is their web site: homeroom510.com. And if you're wondering what this has to do with jam, nothing. Except maybe the jars. :) xo, AB
