The Best Thing I Ate Yesterday: Paella, Cavatelli, Wasabi Shumai


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: Paella with chicken and seafood (from a Saveur recipe), at home.

Robert Sietsema: Cavatelli with broccoli rabe and sausage at Rubirosa (235 Mulberry Street, 212-965-0500).

Victoria Bekiempis: Tomato omelet, made at home.

Chantal Martineau: Wasabi shumai at Haru (385 Flatbush Avenue, Brooklyn, 718-398-3299).
