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: A piece of Landaff cloth-bound cheddar at the New Amsterdam Market.

Jesse Hirsch: Broccoli rabe and sausage on rosemary bread at Frankies 457 Spuntino Brooklyn (457 Court Street, Brooklyn, 718-403-0033).

Chantal Martineau: Ital, a rich, creamy, coconut-based curry of Caribbean roots, at Kaz An Nou (53 Sixth Avenue, Brooklyn, 718-938-3235).
