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 …

Chantal Martineau: Clam and corn chowder at Buttermilk Channel (524 Court Street, Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn; 718-852-8490).

Robert Sietsema: Baked rice pudding with basmati rice, yellow raisins, and cardamom made at home.

Rebecca Marx: A bowl Grape Nuts with honey and figs from the Hollywood farmers market, eaten at home after a long flight.

Sarah DiGregorio: Red curry braised lamb ribs (cheap at Fairway) made at home.
