Chefs Brian McCracken and Dana Tough are in tune with your needs. While writing the menu for the newly opened The Coterie Room in Seattle, they focused on crave-worthy dishes, striving to make a lasting impression on their diners. Enter the restuarant's stepped-up macaroni and cheese. The base of the dish is soubise, or onion sauce, made using the classic French technique of caramelizing sweet onions and blending them into a smooth purée. The addition of three cheeses and whole milk creates a smooth sauce for orecchiette. Crisp, flash-fried shallots are sprinkled on top of the dish before it's served, which ensures an addictive crunch in each bite. I used french fried onions on top. I skipped the shallots.
