It is hard to believe that Milwaukee doesn’t have a restaurant dedicated to mac & cheese. Even my hometown of Atlanta has a mac & cheese festival. This will change this coming summer in Menomonee Falls this summer, when a new restaurant, Grate Modern Mac & Cheese opens its doors.
This will be the first modern mac & cheese restaurant to open in southeastern Wisconsin. Grate Modern Mac & Cheese will be located in the Whitestone Station development at N92W16125 Falls Parkway.
The restaurant will only use local dairy products and feature 10 to 12 mac & cheese dishes like buffalo chicken, chicken bacon jalapeno ranch, and green chile pepperjack. You can even build your own mac & cheese creation and watch it be made in their Woodstone oven.
Grate has teamed up with Master Cheesemakers at Renard’s Cheese in Door County to provide the cheese for all their dishes.

From the press release:
“The cheese is really the hero in our concept,” said Abby Hansen, director of marketing at Roaring Fork. “We’ve been captivated by the emerging segment of mac and cheese restaurant concepts. We love the product, and we’re all connected to the nostalgia of mac and cheese as comfort food. When we decided to diversify our restaurant offerings, we knew mac and cheese was something we could own. We’re rooted right here in Wisconsin, so what better place to do this?”
