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: Duck laab at Kin Shop (469 Sixth Avenue, 212-675-4295).

Victoria Bekiempis: Corned beef and pastrami sandwich on rye bread, with mustard, from Katz’s Delicatessen (205 East Houston Street, 212-254-2246).

Robert Sietsema: South Carolina Gullah shrimp ‘n’ grits, cooked at home.

Chantal Martineau: Kale salad with lemon vinaigrette, red onion, and cooked bacon bits, at home.

Rebecca Marx: Scallops and clams with roasted cauliflower at David Burke Kitchen (23 Grand Street, 212-201-9119).
