The Best Thing I Ate Yesterday: Steak Tartare, Roasted Veal Meatballs, Creamy Polenta


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.
