When faced with hours of walking around and shopping at a huge mall, there may come a point when you just have to stop and eat. We felt compelled to report our experience at the Merrimack Premium Outlets as we were pleasantly surprised. The restaurants in the Food Court try to use quality ingredients, cook fresh and offer healthy alternatives to traditional mall fast foods. See what you think of our taste tests.

 Mac n’ Cheese

Villa is the direct descendent of the original pizza shop that opened in New York City in 1964 by Michele Scotto and still uses the original recipes he brought with him from Naples. For their Mac n’ Cheese, they take mild cheddar cheese and melt it into a classic Alfredo sauce to bathe the macaroni.
