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 …

Robert Sietsema: Dim sum at Very Tong Seafood Restaurant (formerly World Tong, 6202 18th Avenue, Borough Park, Brooklyn, 718-236-8118).

Rebecca Marx: Roasted acorn squash with chickpeas and farro, made at home.

Sarah DiGregorio: Apple cake from my mother’s recipe, at home.

Chantal Martineau: Creekstone Farms Natural Hanger Steak rustic tomato and paprika steak sauce, crispy ‘tater tots’ and shaved maytag blue at Stanton Social (99 Stanton Street, 212-995-0099).
