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 …

Chantal Martineau: The burger at Dean Street (755 Dean Street, Brooklyn, 718-783-3326) … and, post-Nate Smith, it’s still good!

Lauren Shockey: Peekytoe crab roll at wd~50 (50 Clinton Street, 212-477-2900).

Victoria Bekiempis: Zucchini, tomato, and sausage omelet, with buttered rye toast, from Park View Restaurant (219 Dyckman Street, 212-544-9024).

Robert Sietsema: Chinese red-cooked chicken with scallion-ginger sauce, at a friend’s house.

Rebecca Marx: Sour-cream coffee cake, made by my mom.
