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: Poh Taek at Cafe Asean (117 West 10th Street, 212-633-0348).

Victoria Bekiempis: Candy bar pie, from Momofuku Milk Bar (207 Second Avenue, 212-777-7773).

Chantal Martineau: Sea urchin crudo in ocean water, lemon, and olive oil at Fishtag (222 West 79th Street, 212-362-7470).

Robert Sietsema: Chicken-fried squab made at home.

Rebecca Marx: A strawberry-raspberry jammer from CookieBar (505 Park Avenue).
