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: A “stukel” of knoblewurst with rye, mustard, and sauerkraut at Katz’s Delicatessen (205 East Houston Street, 212-254-2246).

Victoria Bekiempis: Vine-ripe tomato soup, made at home.

Chantal Martineau: Turkey pot pie, made at home with leftovers.

Lauren Shockey: Celery root pot pie at the Fat Radish (17 Orchard Street, 212-300-4053).

Rebecca Marx: Red quinoa with broccoli, curry sauce, and a hard-boiled egg, made at home.
