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: Shrimp dumpling and noodle soup, from Great N.Y. Noodletown (28 Bowery, 212-349-0923).

Robert Sietsema: New England clam chowder at Pearl Oyster Bar (18 Cornelia Street, 212-691-8211).

Lauren Shockey: Sesame bagel from St.-Viateur in Montreal, at home.

Rebecca Marx: Stir-fried tofu with soba and roasted cauliflower, at a friend’s house.

Chantal Martineau: Poutine at Green Spot in Montreal (3041, Rue Notre-Dame Ouest, 514-931-6473).
