With similar restaurant names, why not compare two feel-good comfy foods back to back? First, there's the Kitchen 24 in Hollywood with their Smac & Cheese ($8.95) made out of cheddar, mascarpone, smoked gruyere and topped with a basil herbed crust. Over in Silver Lake, The Kitchen serves it's Mac N' Cheese ($8.00) with extra sharp cheddar in a garlicky sauce.
