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: Lentil soup at B & H (127 Second Avenue, 212-505-8065).

Victoria Bekiempis: Coconut bun, from Mei Li Wah Bakery (62-64 Bayard Street, 212-966-7866).

Rebecca Marx: A blood orange.

Chantal Martineau: Sul long tang soup at Gam Mi Oak (43 West 32nd Street, #1, 212-695-4113).

Robert Sietsema: Roast chicken with anchovies and capers made at home from a Lidia Bastianich recipe.
