Laurelhurst Who?

              So I visited the “acclaimed” Laurelhurst Market restaurant a couple weeks ago with my sister, because my mother and her could not stop raving about how amazing their mac n cheese is. And being such a MnC enthusiast I finally caved in and went. I ordered the Steak Frites and a side order of their mac n cheese crusted with Tom’s potato chips. I was excited when the food came, I’m not a huge steak person but Laurelhurst’s menu is extremely limited to fairly boring steaks, I was more excited to taste the mac n cheese. As soon as I dug in my first thought was, what the fuck is with this gravy all over my steak? I felt like I was eating at a diner in the midwest with my super rare steak slathered in this unappetizing brown goo-like substance. The mac n cheese was extremely disappointing. As soon as I took a bite I asked myself, what exactly is good about this? It was not cheesy at all, very burnt on the top, and oddly oily. My mac n cheese kicks the shit out of this, well, shit. I do not recommend Laurelhurst Market unless you are a  hipster who enjoys eating over priced mediocre food and receiving their cheque on a slab of wood…You can do better PDX.
