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: Clara — beer mixed with lemonade — made at home.

Robert Sietsema: Brussels sprouts with honey, sriracha, and sesame seeds at the Vanderbilt (570 Vanderbilt Avenue, Brooklyn, 718-623-0570).

Lauren Shockey: Porchetta sandwich at Porchetta (110 East 7th Street, 212-777-2151).

Rebecca Marx: General Tso’s tofu at No. 7 Sub (1188 Broadway, 212-532-1680).
