111Flatiron Foodie: Hawksmoor's Macaroni & Cheese

Flatiron Foodie: Hawksmoor's Macaroni & Cheese

Beloved steakhouse Hawksmoor shares with us their Macaroni & Cheese recipe, which includes a cheese sauce featuring five local cheeses and a parmesan panko breadcrumb topping that combine to create gooey cheesy goodness perfect for a holiday side dish. Executive Chef Matt Bernero walks us through how to make this comfort food classic. "We’ve learned over the years that a stringy cheese pull triggers more pleasure receptors than without. Our macaroni and cheese uses five local cheeses (which you can purchase at Saxelby’s) and delivers a long, stringy pull," says Chef Bernero. 

First established in London, Hawksmoor came across the pond and opened their first US location in NYC this September. Considered one of the best steakhouses in the world, we're delighted to have them in the Flatiron neighborhood. Hawksmoor serves dishes featuring ethically and sustainably sourced ingredients and partners with local American farmers, ranchers, and fishermen. The curated menu includes dry-aged, all-natural, pasture-reared steaks cooked over real charcoal, sustainably-sourced seafood, an array of sides, desserts, and award-winning cocktails. 

Hawksmoor, located at 109 East 22nd Street in the historic United Charities Building, is open for dinner Tuesday-Saturday, from 5:30 pm to 10 pm and the bar is open Tuesday-Saturday from 4 pm - midnight. 

Macaroni & Cheese Recipe


Cheese Sauce

  • 1 tablespoon of Plain Flour 
  • 1 tablespoon of Unsalted Butter
  • 1/4 cup of Briana Cheese
  • 1/4 cup of Chef's Shred
  • 1/4 cup of Bayley Hazen Blue
  • 1/2 cup of Whole Milk
  • 1/16 teaspoon of Nutmeg
  • 1/16 teaspoon of White Pepper

2. Cook out the roux for at least 5 minutes moving regularly.
3. Heat the milk to a foamy boil.
4. While whisking the roux slowly ladle the hot milk into it until it has fully incorporated before the next ladle is added.
5. After all the milk has been mixed, continue to whisk the milk for 5-10 minutes until the sauce has thickened slightly.
6. Slowly add the grated Bayley Hazen Blue, Briana and the Chef’s Shred and stir till smooth and completely melted.
7. Once melted and smooth remove from the heat to prevent the sauce from splitting.
8. Season the finished sauce with the salt, ground white pepper and nutmeg.
9. Reserve until needed.

Directions for Pasta:

1. In a large pan, bring 8 cups of salted water to the boil.
2. Once the water is boiling, add 1/2 cup of dried pasta to the water and stir occasionally.
3. Cook out the pasta for approx. 9 minutes or until the pasta is slightly ‘al dente.’
4. Drain pasta from the pasta water.
5. Cool the pasta in cold running water.
6. Reserve for service.

Directions for Parmesan Panko:

1. Mix and reserve. 

Put It All Together:

1. Mix the cooked pasta with the sauce & warm through.
2. When warmed, fold in the diced mozzarella and place the mixture into staub.
3. Top with the parmesan & panko.
4. Bake for 4-5 minutes until top is golden brown but the sauce has not dried out or split.
5. Make sure there is a layer of sauce on the top and bottom of the dish, for a golden brown finish.

111Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership's 15th Annual Meeting Recap

Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership's 15th Annual Meeting Recap

The Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership held its 15th Annual Meeting & Community Reception on Tuesday, November 9 on the rooftop terrace at Cure (345 Park Avenue South), Deerfield Management’s new healthcare innovation campus. With the theme “Moving Forward,” the meeting showcased the Partnership’s work to sustain Flatiron and NoMad’s vitality through the pandemic and beyond. The occasion marked the Partnership’s first in-person annual meeting since 2019, following last year’s virtual event.

“The past year has been filled with stops and starts, optimism and skepticism, but we are ultimately moving forward together with real hope on behalf of the people like you, who continue to believe in this neighborhood as premier location in which to live, work, play, and do business,” said Partnership Executive Director James Mettham in his State of the District presentation.

Mettham highlighted signs of resiliency and recovery in the district, including dozens of new business openings, new real estate developments, the return of visitors and employees, and rising pedestrian counts on the Flatiron Public Plazas. He also outlined the Partnership’s current and upcoming initiatives, including expansion of the BID’s boundaries which will nearly double the size of the Partnership’s service area in 2022.

Jane Gural-Senders, Vice Chair of the Partnership’s Board of Directors, kicked off the proceedings by welcoming the 125 attendees and 44 people who watched remotely on Zoom. Additional speakers included New York City Council Member-elect Erik Bottcher who affirmed his commitment to working closely with the Partnership, and Deerfield’s Chief Partnership and Communications Officer Karen Heidelberger, who illuminated the impact Cure will have by bringing innovative companies, cutting-edge jobs, and programming to the district.

After electing members to its Board of Directors and approving the FY 2022 budget, the Partnership presented its annual awards. Recipients included Gail Duke of New York Life Insurance (Robert B. Frankel Chairperson’s Award); Miguel Perez of Home Depot (Partnership Award); Emily Weidenhof, Jessica Cronstein, and Kyle Gorman of the New York City Department of Transportation’s Public Space Unit (Partnership Award); Officers Arlyn Zapata and Eric Demery of the NYPD 13th Precinct (Outstanding Service Award); and Adel "Benny" Ben-Brika and Moussa Diouf from the Partnership’s Clean Team (Outstanding Service Award).

The program was followed by a community networking and cocktail reception catered by CxRA.
