Here we have a look inside soon-to-open mac n' cheese mecca Homeroom, where owners Allison Arevalo and Erin Wade have been hard at work creating something out of an empty shell of a space since April. Back then it was called Little Mac, but that was before they had a nicely publicized scuffle with McDonald's, changed their name to Homeroom, were dubbed one of the top four small food businesses in America by Daily Candy and then embarked on a successful Kickstarter fundraising campaign to complete the build out.
Community support has been big for this little one. And as you see here, the interior -- built to a great extent with the owners' bare hands -- is looking comely indeed as it readies for a sold-out Valentine's event on the 14th followed by a grand opening on Tuesday. Without further ado, the final opening menu is here. Hours will start with lunch only. Dinner is expected in the next two weeks or so and you can keep up on developments on Twitter, Facebook or the good ol' fashioned website. Early reports on Homeroom shall be much appreciated in the comments or straight to Eater HQ.
