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 …

Rebecca Marx: The pickled herring salad at Café Katja (79 Orchard Street, 212-219-9545).

Lauren Shockey: Banh xeo at Thanh Da (6008 Seventh Avenue, Brooklyn, 718-492-3253).

Victoria Bekiempis: $3 pints of Coors at Johnny’s Bar (90 Greenwich Avenue, #A, 212-741-5279).

Robert Sietsema: Fiori (flower-shaped pasta) sauced with wild mushrooms and ham, made at home.

Chantal Martineau: Goat cheese pound cake at CultureFix (9 Clinton Street, 646-863-7171).
