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: Stuffed eggplant, pepper, and tofu with black beans and scallion at Great N.Y. Noodletown (28 Bowery, 212-349-0923).

Robert Sietsema: Huevos rancheros with diced red tomatoes, green tomatillos, and fresh jalapenos at home.

Rebecca Marx: A piece of pumpkin pie, at home.

Chantal Martineau: turkey noodle soup with stock and meat from my holiday bird at home, courtesy of DiPaola Turkey Farm at the Fort Greene farmers’ market.

Lauren Shockey: Takoyaki at Otafuku (236 East 9th Street, 212-353-8503).
