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: Chocolate chip cookies at home.

Chantal Martineau: Braised goat in massaman curry with fried shallots, purple yams, mustard greens, and toasted coconut at Kin Shop (469 Sixth Avenue, 212-675-4295).

Robert Sietsema: Hamburger (medium rare with mayo and raw purple onions) with french fries at Bayard’s Ale House (533 Hudson Street, 212-989-0313).

Rebecca Marx: Potatoes with chickpeas, tuna, olives, and caramelized onions, made at home.

Victoria Bekiempis: Vegetarian sandwich from St. Mark’s Market (21 St. Marks Place, 212-253-7777).
