The Best Thing I Ate Yesterday

Welcome to The Best Thing I Ate Yesterday, where we endeavor to remember the very best thing we stuffed down our gullets over the past 24 hours. Why? Because the only thing better than enjoying a meal is wallowing in the memory of one savored in the recent past.

Today's fond reminiscences ...

Robert Sietsema: Head cheese sandwich with gribiche sauce at M. Wells (21-17 49th Avenue, Long Island City, Queens, 718-425-6917).

Victoria Bekiempis: Chocolate-lace Italian butter cookie, at Clover Deli (621 Second Avenue, 212-683-0227).

Rebecca Marx: A molasses-ginger cookie from Little Buddy Biscuit Co. (635 Fifth Avenue, Brooklyn, 718-369-6355).

Lauren Shockey: Hamburger with crispy fried onions at Elephant & Castle (68 Greenwich Avenue, 212-243-1400).
