Another Trip to Eats in Stuyvesant Plaza
I always enjoy poking around Eats in Stuyvesant plaza (and posting about what I get). The establishment has a nice selection of specialty "gourmet" type groceries, meats, and cheeses. I have purchased a lot of cheese and meat from Eats but I have not purchased any of their in-house prepared foods. When I saw this tasty looking macaroni and cheese I decided to give it a try. It was really very good with a nice tang of Gorgonzola under the general cheddar flavor. Just the right consistency as well, creamy but not soupy, which is my preferred mac and cheese style. Maybe I will start picking up stuff from Eats more often, their knishes looked pretty solid as well.
I also picked up some truffle infused Chevre which looks just delicious.
I always appreciate a personal touch in customer service, so I had to give some credit here as well. I was pushing my daughter, wee Giblet, in her stroller and the proprietor inquired as to whether it would be my first father's day (it is). She gave me the above pictured cheese cutter as father's day present and I thought this was very nice of her.
