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: Pepperoni pizza from John’s Pizzeria (278 Bleecker Street, 212-243 1680).

Victoria Bekiempis: Vegetable and tofu udon noodle soup, from Ichi Ro Sushi (1694 Second Avenue, 212-369-6300).

Chantal Martineau: Diego Rivera cocktail (tequila, Meletti amaro, Bonal Gentiane, citrus, and egg whites) at the Rum House (228 West 47th Street, 646-490-6923).

Robert Sietsema: Enchiladas stuffed with Oaxacan cheese and smothered in bright red chile ajillo sauce, at home.

Rebecca Marx: Baked eggs with focaccia, at a friend’s house.
