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 …

Risotto ball at City Winery (155 Varick Street, 212-608-0555).

Rebecca Marx: Spanokopita from Anthi’s Greek Foods (614A Amsterdam Avenue, 212-787-1007).

Robert Sietsema: Chocolate cookies made at home.

Chantal Martineau: Vegetable pakoras at Sapid (595 Washington Avenue, Brooklyn, 718-857-8100).

Lauren Shockey: The shrimp and pork bun from Baoguette Café (37 St. Marks Place, 212-380-1487).
