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 …

Lauren Shockey: The lamb shoulder at Junoon (27 West 24th Street, 212-490-2100).

Robert Sietsema: Turoscsusza tepertovel (noodles with farmer’s cheese and bacon) at Andre’s Café (1631 Second Avenue, 212-327-1105).

Rebecca Marx: Monkfish tikka at Junoon (27 West 24th Street, 212-490-2100).

Chantal Martineau: Spaghetti with red sauce and meatballs at Joe & Pat’s on Staten Island (1758 Victory Boulevard, 718-981-0887).
