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: Wine-soaked chicken’s feet from Shanghai Asian Cuisine (14A Elizabeth Street, 212-964-5640).

Robert Sietsema: Slice of pizza after excellent Nada Surf show at Mercury Lounge at Stromboli (83 St. Marks Place, 212-673-3691).

Rebecca Marx: Peanut butter hot chocolate from Shake Shack (Madison Square Park).

Lauren Shockey: Shrimp cocktail at home.

Chantal Martineau: Mushroom gnocchi at the National (557 Lexington Avenue, 212-715-2400).
