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 …

Lauren Shockey: Scallops on the half shell with grapes at Jeffrey’s Grocery (172 Waverly Place, 646-398-7630).

Robert Sietsema: Italiano special tamale at Tortilleria Nixtamal (104-05 47th Avenue, Queens, 718-699-2434).

Rebecca Marx: A grilled cheese-kimchi sandwich and tomato soup, at home.
