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: Penne with tomato-butter sauce (Marcella Hazan recipe), at home.

Victoria Bekiempis: Linguine with tomato basil sauce, at a friend’s house.

Chantal Martineau: Eggs mayonnaise at Thirstbaràvin (629 Classon Avenue, Brooklyn, 718-857-9227).

Rebecca Marx: Panade, made at home.
