Downtown is no slouch when it comes to mac & cheese. Pete's Cafe has always been known for its offering, and more recently entries from the Nickel Diner and South Park's Corkbar have gotten praise.

Into that crowded field steps the new Mac & Cheeza, a new offering from the owners of Eagle Rock's Larkin's Joint. The eatery will be having a four-hour soft opening during Thursday evening's Art Walk.

You're not going to find any details on the eatery's skeleton website, but the small space is located on the 8th street side of the Chapman Flats and will offer takeout and delivery only. The menu is -- as one might guess from the name -- focused on macaroni and cheese, and the tagline promises both "eats and sweets."

An email sent to the restaurant's mailing list yesterday afternoon says that Thursday's preview will run 7 - 11pm. It's cash only, so plan accordingly.
