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: Clams casino pizza at Modern Apizza (874 State Street, New Haven, Connecticut, 203-776-5306).

Chantal Martineau: A cocktail called the Liberal, made at home with Averna, bourbon, sweet vermouth, and Bitter Truth Orange bitters, stirred and served up.

Rebecca Marx: Veggie meatballs at the Meatball Shop (84 Stanton Street, 212-982-8895).

Sarah DiGregorio: Roast chicken with lemon pan sauce and watercress, at home.
