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 pecan pie sundae at Buttermilk Channel (524 Court Street, Brooklyn, 718-852-8490).

Lauren Shockey: Forest mushrooms with salsify at What Happens When (25 Cleveland Place, 212-925-8310).

Chantal Martineau: Raviolo with ricotta, arugula pesto, and pistachio oil at Elsewhere (403 West 43rd Street, 212-315-2121).

Victoria Bekiempis: Cabbage and corn okonomiyaki, from Otafuku (236 East 9th Street, 212-353-8503).

Robert Sietsema: Banh mi from V-Nam Cafe (20 First Avenue, 212-780-6020).
