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: Lobster Newburg at Delmonico’s (56 Beaver Street, 212-509-1144).
Victoria Bekiempis: Beef kebbeh from University Pita (21 East 12th Street, 212-924-4333).
Chantal Martineau: A Cocktail à la Louisiane, made with rye whiskey, sweet vermouth, Benedictine, Peychaud’s bitters, and an absinthe rinse at Raines Law Room (48 West 17th Street, 212-242-0600).
Rebecca Marx: Mac and cheese at the City Bakery (3 West 18th Street, 212-366-1414).
