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: A spinach pie at Karam in Bay Ridge (8519 Fourth Avenue, Brooklyn, 718-745-5227).

Victoria Bekiempis: Caponata with eggplant, capers, and raisins at Brancaccio’s Food Shop in Windsor Terrace (3011 Fort Hamilton Parkway, Brooklyn, 718-435-1997).

Chantal Martineau: Butternut squash soup with fried sage flakes, made at home.

Robert Sietsema: Homemade Mexican pozole with chicken, pork, kale, and hominy.
