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: Homemade mozzarella with California olive oil and garlic bread at Torrisi Italian Specialties (250 Mulberry Street, 212-965-0955).

Chantal Martineau: Tatsuta age (ginger-flavored Japanese fried chicken wings) at Gen (659 Washington Avenue, Brooklyn, 718-398-3550).

Rebecca Marx: Lemon meringue tart at Patisserie Colson (374 9th Street, Brooklyn, 718-965-6400).
