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 seckel pear from the Union Square Greenmarket.

Chantal Martineau: Steak burrito at Taqueria de los Muertos (663 Washington Avenue, Brooklyn, 718-484-0310).
