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: Bibimbap at Gam Mee Oak (43 West 32nd Street, 212-695-4113).

Robert Sietsema: Cauliflower and potato curry thickened with cream, modified recipe from The Vegetarian Epicure by Anna Thomas (New York: Vintage Books, 1972).

Rebecca Marx: Russ & Daughters pastrami and dill salmon, on pumpernickel bread.
