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: Salty black olives and sweet dried Turkish figs, at home.

Lauren Shockey: Seafood gumbo (adapted from a Craig Claiborne recipe), made at home.

Chantal Martineau: Lamb vindaloo at Sapid Indian Food (595 Washington Avenue, Brooklyn, 718-857-8100).

Robert Sietsema: Clay pot red curry catfish rice at V-Nam Café (20 First Avenue, 212-780-6020).
