As temperatures get colder, comfort food is a must to take away the chill of a rainy or snowy day.


Be it a steaming hot bowl of soup or chili, a meatloaf like mom use to make or, in Dancing Marlin Restaurant’s case, a mound of pasta and cheesiness known most commonly as macaroni and cheese.


But Dancing Marlin may have the macaroni and cheese dish to top them all in the Mac Daddy.


“There was a guy I hung around with, and anything he addressed he would say, ‘Make that like the Mac Daddy,’” Dancing Marlin managing partner Ed Nemec said of the name.
