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: Paccheri alla Genovese at Donatella (184 Eighth Avenue, 212-493-5150).

Chantal Martineau: Chicken flautas topped with lettuce, queso, and crema fresca at Chavella’s (732 Classon Avenue, Brooklyn, 718-622-3100).

Rebecca Marx: Sweet potato-bourbon bundt cake, made at home.
