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: Spicy double-cooked pork at Grand Sichuan (368 West 46th Street, 212-969-9001).

Robert Sietsema: Smoked brisket with white bread, pickles, and raw onions, at Smitty’s in Lockhart, Texas.

Victoria Bekiempis: Tomato and vegetable soup, made at home.

Rebecca Marx: Leftover panade, made at home.

Lauren Shockey: Homemade chocolate-chip ice cream, at home.
