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 …

Chantal Martineau: Beef Wellington at One if by Land, Two if by Sea (17 Barrow Street, 212-255-8649).

Robert Sietsema: Oxtail braised in stout at Red Rooster (310 Lenox Avenue, 212-792-9001).

Rebecca Marx: Leftover hummus, tomato salad, and stewed fava beans from Mimi’s Hummus (1209 Cortelyou Road, 718-284-4444).
