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: Bacon and vegetable fried rice, made at home.

Victoria Bekiempis: Sliced mango.

Chantal Martineau: Baby spinach and warm smoked duck salad, made at home (with duck from Hudson Valley Duck Farm).

Robert Sietsema: Sandwich made with Nueske’s ham on Amy’s green-olive bread, at home.

Rebecca Marx: Grits with tempura-fried poached egg, pickled mushrooms, and queso fresco at Dirt Candy (430 East 9th Street, 212-228-7732).
