The Bedford, Southern Mac Truck Team Up

As we continue to wait for chef Mark Steuer to open The Bedford in the Wicker Park 'hood, here's something to keep us occupied in the meantime.
Apparently, he's teamed up with The Southern's mac 'n' cheese truck to give us a preview of what to expect when his resto opens in April.
He's hopping aboard March 22-24, and proceeds from his creations will go towards local charity The Working Bikes Cooperative. Working Bikes is a not-for-profit organization that diverts bicycles from the waste stream in Chicago by repairing them for sale and charity.
Here's what he will be serving:
Kasespaetzle: macaroni with Gruyere, charred onions and crispy braised pork belly
Macaroni Carbonara: Pancetta, shallots, peas, béchamel, touch of egg yolk and parmesan
Macaroni Stroganoff: roasted mushrooms, meatballs, sherry and blue cheese gravy
Damn. Those ALL sound good as hell!
