Everyone We Saw at Cincinnati’s Mac & Cheese Throwdown at The Phoenix


CityBeat's Mac & Cheese Throwdown returned to the Queen City on Nov. 2.

The cheesiest event of the year took place at downtown's The Phoenix where local chefs went head-to-head in a melty, cheesy smackdown competition pitting mac and cheese dish against mac and cheese dish to see whose creation reigned supreme.

The event hosted over 15 local mac and cheese slingin' restaurants including favorites like Eli's BBQ, Fiery Hen, Keystone's Mac Shack, MamaBear's Mac (the winner of 2018's throwdown), and Lucius Q.

The winners of this year's event tied for first place: Court Street Lobster Bar and Tom & Chee.
