The Best Thing I Ate Yesterday: Jonah Crab, Falafel, Cream of Rice, and a Negroni

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 ...

Lauren Shockey: Jonah crab with spring onion sauce at Compose (77 Worth Street, 212-226-1444).

Chantal Martineau: The New Pal: a variation on a Negroni made with rye, at home.

Victoria Bekiempis: Spinach and jalapeño falafel sandwich, from Taïm Mobile (

Robert Sietsema: Cream of rice with milk and maple syrup, at home.

Rebecca Marx: A slice of Zingerman's lime and coconut coffee cake, at home.
