Carlyle Grill (Ann Arbor, MI)

– “Carlyle Mac & Cheese” –

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2

Presentation: ⭐️⭐️⭐️
The photo above was taken after I mixed up the dish a bit. The mac is presented with a baked layer on top, so it wasn’t all that appealing upon first glance. However, the plating itself was still nice, especially after the pasta was mixed.

Flavor: ⭐️⭐️⭐️ 
The dish was very savory and a little oniony, but the most prominent  element about the flavor of this mac, however, was its heavy taste. After eating a few bites, I was pretty stuffed and had a mild stomach ache. Definitely a little too much something.

Creaminess: ⭐️⭐️⭐️
The dish was satisfactory in the creaminess category, but did dry up  a little whilst being consumed.

Cheesiness: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
White cheddar is always a thumbs up. I would say that it made up for the mac’s heavy flavor to a degree.

Overall Experience: 
Definitely a very hearty dish, a little too hearty maybe. The baked top was not a huge W from me, but we all like different things. Not perfect, but still not a bad mac.
