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 …

Victoria Bekiempis: Maker’s Mark and soda at Subway Inn (143 East 60th Street, 212-752-6500).

Rebecca Marx: Spaghettini with squid ink, calamari, and green chickpeas at Il Buco (47 Bond Street, 212-533-1932).

Robert Sietsema: Turkey-stuffed arepa at a party in Williamsburg.

Chantal Martineau: Chilaquiles for breakfast at the Quinta Real Hotel in Guadalajara, Mexico, before flying back to New York. (Avenida México 2727, Colonia Vallarta Norte).

Lauren Shockey: Pickled shrimp, at a friend’s house
