Mac N Cheese &
Darren & Kristine McGill started their food venture in 2010 with a small food cart, dubbed Happy Grillmore, in downtown Portland. Voted as Portland's Best Burger the following year for their signature 'the Chubs', the food truck moved north to take on Seattle. The McGills quickly established their name and in 2014, collaborated with business partner and retired NBA star Nate Robinson to open Seattle's first chicken and waffle restaurant, Nate's Wings & Waffles. Building on the popularity of Nate's signature Mac & Cheese the couple opened MELT, which served creative variations of their original mac, pressed sandwiches and cheesy sides. Then in 2016, things got sweet and Central District Ice Cream Company emerged as the third food establishment by the restauranteur veterans.
