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: The butterscotch pot with cumin pecans at Peels (325 Bowery, 646-602-7105).

Robert Sietsema: Morcilla (blood sausage) with a poached egg and pickled sweet potato at Caliu (557 Hudson Street, 212-206-6444).

Victoria Bekiempis: Soy-glazed tofu with cabbage and carrots, made at home.

Rebecca Marx: Oatmeal with walnuts, dried figs, and maple syrup.
