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 …

Sarah DiGregorio: An English muffin topped with two slices of tomato from the Greenmarket and crumbled Stilton, toasted under the broiler

Rebecca Marx: Homemade challah topped with homemade tomato jam and Russ & Daughters’ (179 East Houston Street, 212-475-4880) pastrami salmon and goat cream cheese

Robert Sietsema: Chicken fried steak with scary white gravy at Cowgirl Hall of Fame (519 Hudson Street, 212-627-6657)
