    The Cellar is cozy and perfect for a glass of wine, a few nibblies, and good conversation. All the apps we had were good, and the worlds best Mac and cheese was definitely up there. Nice service, too.

    Cheese plates, kale salad and the famous mac and cheese are all my favorites here. Plus they have excellent cocktails! Date worthy spot but good for a pricier happy hour, too.

    Go for the cocktails stay for the mac and cheese! Definitely tops the chart as some of the best in NYC. Special shoutout to the burratta with the honey balsamic glaze 😍

    One of my favorite spots in NYC! Fantastic option for happy hour in the area or for just grabbing wine and apps and hanging out. Super dark and intimate and sophisticated!

    You can't go wrong with one of the many innovative mac-and-cheese dishes at this dairy-centric Flatiron eatery, where aging cheese wheels and cow art serve as decoration. Read more

    The Cellar sells their own cheese, charcuterie and deli sandwiches. But what makes Beecher's stand out from its competitors is The Cellar, the shop's subterranean restaurant and bar. Read more

    Delicious Mac and cheese. Pork belly isn't anything too special but the mushroom and cauliflower are AMAZING.

    I love this place for lunch, never been for dinner. The Patty Melt is spot on. Order one of the mac and cheeses to share with the table (or maybe 2 if you're feeling hungry!)

    We love the happy hour here, since it features $5 specialty cocktails, $6 glasses of wine, AND $7 mac and cheese (enough for a meal!). Make sure to come early before the place fills up.

    Just one block from my office, this joint is my happy hour jam. Get the $5 cocktail or the $6 Cabernet with the cheese plate or mac & cheese at $8 a pop and is perfect to split with a friend/date.

    Incredible happy hour. The simple salad was a perfect for 3 people to split, and then each had their own Mac and Cheese. That plus a few drinks each... Out the door for $100.

    One of my favorite happy hour spots around. From 5-7 weeknights, house infusion cocktail changes daily and is $5, glass of house red or white wine is $6. Great atmosphere. Service varies.

    Their lunch menu is delicious. It’s a great spot for a (lunch) meeting because they have free WiFi! Try the tomato soup or the burrata.

    Be sure to steal samples from Beecher's in the shop above before heading to the basement. This place is legendary. I loved how you can feel the train go by just a little!

    Delicious cheese boards with cheeses made on site. You can also see cheese being made upstairs and can buy everything that you get on the cheeseboard.

    Nice atmosphere and still pretty undiscovered so easy to get a table. Perfect spot for strong drinks and tasty snacks like a cheese plate or brussel sprouts. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Always packed around Happy Hour, but head over after 7 pm and grab a spot at the bar for wines by the glass and snacks. Great date atmosphere.

    Go before 7pm for happy hour specials on drinks. Order the cheesemonger's plate (more variety than the Beecher's); 3 cheeses for a light starter to share, 5 if you mean business.

    One of my favorite places in NYC. They don't take reservations for happy hour but if you get there early they'll sit you anyway.

    The mushroom tart is everything I want in life. Just to come home to a nice, warm mushroom tart at night... what more do you need.

    A little bit darker as you come downstairs so it's a little more charming. It's also usually busier than the upstairs.

    Loved the cauliflower Mac n cheese & the mushroom torte (though I wish there had been more crust). Wasn't so impressed w the veg gratin.
