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: Tofu and vegetable dol sot bibimbap, from Seoul Garden (34 West 32nd Street, 212-736-9002).

Robert Sietsema: Hamburger with Gruyère and pickled purple onions at Goat Town (511 East 5th Street, 212-687-3942).

Chantal Martineau: Vegetarian lasagna made with pasta from Eataly (200 Fifth Avenue, 646-398-5100), at a friend’s house.

Rebecca Marx: A snickerdoodle from Blue Bottle Coffee (160 Berry Street, Brooklyn, 718-534-5488).

Lauren Shockey: Clementines, at home.
