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 ...

Rebecca Marx: Cooking greens at Porchetta (110 East 7th Street, 212-777-2151).

Lauren Shockey: Chantal's Norman Mailer at Fatty Johnson's (50 Carmine Street, 212-929-5050).

Chantal Martineau: Fried chicken at Fatty Johnson's.

Robert Sietsema: Mushroom ragu with polenta at Lido (2168 Frederick Douglass Boulevard, 646-490-8575).

Victoria Bekiempis: Shrimp-stuffed eggplant, from the Cottage (33 Irving Place, 212-505-8600).
