The Best Thing I Ate Yesterday: Oysters, Speck, Mole, Quinoa

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: Oysters with BBQ vinaigrette at The Brooklyn Star (593 Lorimer Street, Brooklyn, 718- 599-9899).

Victoria Bekiempis: Mole poblano enchiladas, filled with pork, from Downtown Bakery (69 1st Avenue, 212-254-1757).

Chantal Martineau: Oven-roasted chicken at Zaytoon's (472 Myrtle Avenue, Brooklyn, 718-623-5522).

Robert Sietsema: Speck (smoked prosciutto) from Murray's Cheese (254 Bleecker Street, 212-243-3289).

Rebecca Marx: Quinoa with sundried tomatoes, parmesan cheese, roasted butternut squash, and a fried egg, at home.
