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: Egg drop soup, made at home.

Chantal Martineau: Whole-grain farro pasta with local autumn squash, brussels sprouts, toasted pumpkin seeds, and grated haloumi cheese at Olea (171 Lafayette Avenue, Brooklyn, 718-643-7003).

Robert Sietsema: Sliced pork with red chili oil at Grand Sichuan (23 St. Marks Place, 212-529-4800).

Lauren Shockey: Cookies and cream ice cream at home.

Rebecca Marx: Chana masala from the Whole Foods salad bar (95 Houston Street, 212-420-1320).
