The Best Thing I Ate Yesterday: Kale, Eggs, Olive Oil Cake, and American Cheese


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: Stewed lentils and kale at Buvette (42 Grove Street, 212-255-3590).

Robert Sietsema: Scrambled egg, sage, and cheese sandwich at Five Leaves (18 Bedford Avenue, Greenpoint, 718-383-5345).

Chantal Martineau: Olive-oil cake and a spectacular cortado at Abraço (86 East 7th Street, 212-388-9731).
