The Vinsetta Garage is quite the establishment. It’s been on three food shows, The United States of Bacon, Best Bars in America and Bite this With Nadia G. The folks who own Vinsetta also own Union Wood Shop and Union Bar and Kitchen, which were both on Diner’s Drive In’s and Dives.
We decided to go to Vinsetta because you can get the famous mac & cheese from the sister restaurant, Union Bar and Kitchen as well as some amazing burgers.
We had the breadsticks as an appetizer. You see that pool of liquid on them? That’s melted butter. Was it healthy? No. Was it good? Hell yes.
I took the bullet and tried the famous mac and cheese. Check it out guys. I can honestly say, that it was the best friggin mac and cheese I’ve ever had. It was all about the crust. Have you had creme brûlée before? The crust on top was almost like the sugary topping on creme brûlée. Except it was cheese. It was crunchy and utterly fantastic.
I got through about a quarter of it. I tried to get a reference shot with my fork. Look at that huge serving. I seriously had enough to share with Ivan and eat it for lunch the next two days.
As I said before, Vinsetta was also on Best Bars in America. We had a long drive home so we didn’t have any drinks, but they had a great beer list.
I’d say that the Vinsetta Garage lived up to the hype. I wish that we lived closer to Berkley, but it’s probably better that I don’t. Nobody needs that much macaroni and cheese in their lives.
