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 …

Jesse Hirsch: Crab cakes and cucumber dill salad from Dorian’s Seafood Market (1580 York Avenue, 212-535-2256), enhanced with homemade garlic/hot pepper aioli and an heirloom tomato from Floyd Bennett Field.

Rebecca Marx: Nordic Breads‘ ( ruis bread with homemade tomato jam, homemade hummus, and pickled herring from Russ & Daughters (179 East Houston, 212-475-4880).
