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: Quinoa-mango-chocolate chunk cookie from Birdbath Bakery (The New Museum, 235 Bowery).

Robert Sietsema: Spaghetti carbonara made at home with plenty of bacon, egg yolks, and grated parmesan.

Sarah DiGregorio: Lamb and sweet potato stew with smoked paprika at a friend’s house.

Chantal Martineau: Pistokku with bresaola, arugula, pesto, goat cheese, and mozzarella at D.O.C. Wine Bar (83 North 7th Street, Brooklyn, 718-963-1925).
