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 …

Robert Sietsema: Lobster roll, with mayo on a brioche roll, made at home.

Victoria Bekiempis: Steak sandwich from El Papasito Forever Restaurant (346 West 53rd Street, 212-265-2225).

Chantal Martineau: Homemade ricotta on toast with a drizzle of olive oil, pear, and chopped walnuts, at home.

Rebecca Marx: Tofu huevos rancheros at St. Francis Fountain in San Francisco (2801 24th Street, 415-826-4200).

Lauren Shockey: Ginger congee from Congee Village (100 Allen Street, 212-941-1818).
