GEORGIA: Macaroni and Cheese

How do you like your mac 'n' cheese? Do you prefer the soft, creamy parts from the center? Or the chewy edges and the crunchy crust? At Atlanta's Mary Mac's Tea Room, there are plenty of crisp and chewy parts, but the essence of the dish is its center, a virtual cheese custard with tender noodle nuggets inside. The lavish stuff is one of about a dozen goopy-rich side dishes that accompany the likes of crunch-crusted fried chicken, roast turkey with cornbread dressing, and country-fried steak. This traditional Southern joint opened in 1945 in its historic Midtown location, just east of the magnificent old Fox Theater. Mary Mac's has an especially fun way of placing orders: Customers fill out their own order tickets while the waitress fetches sweet tea and corn muffins.
