Prost (cheers) to bier, bratwurst and mac ‘n’ cheese!
At the end of Pier 15 in NYC’s historic Seaport District is Watermark, a 10,000-square-foot outdoor bar, restaurant and event space that throws a massive Oktoberfest celebration throughout the month of October.
Amongst the German brats, pretzels and beer is a delicious German-inspired fusion, Gaffel’s Beer Mac & Cheese. The mouthwatering item is one of Watermark's most popular menu items with enough cheese and beer to satisfy your stomach.
"In the spirit of Oktoberfest, we wanted to feature German beers in conjunction with a comfort food that can be enjoyed by the whole family," says Chef Antelmo Ambrosio, "so we created the Gaffel’s Beer Mac & Cheese incorporating Gaffel Kolsch Beer into the classic comfort dish. As with most recipes, we recommend using the highest quality ingredients, but the quality of extra sharp cheddar is especially important when making this mac and cheese."
Oktoberfest runs now through Oct. 24, so put on your Lederhosen and Dirndls and try this recipe soon!
