Stuffed Zucchini Flowers, Fiori di Zucca, Frittelli

There are a few names for this tasty Italian Treat.... where can I find them? I know Crispo had them in the past and I read that Pala has them. Anywhere else? Thanks!

    1. Bacaro has them.

      Several of the Roman-style trattorie might offer it as a seasonal special. Lupa and Cacio e Pepe come to mind. There is also the recently opened Sora Lella and Quinto Quarto, neither of which I have tried.

        I replied on Outer Boroughs. In additon to Bacaro, menupages lists four or five midtown places.

          Find-a-food is a great resource. However, I believe these other places you mention might incorporate zucchini flowers into other dishes such as pasta or risotto. Worth giving those menus a careful looking over though, to be sure.

          I think OP (if I understood correctly) is specifically looking for fried, stuffed zucchini flowers such as Bacaro or Pala serve.

            I think I searched for fiori di zucca ripieni, but double check the menus for sure.

      2. I had an incredible one, just added to the menu, at Marea last night. A little pricey at $10 for one blossom, but worthy every penny. Filled with mozzarella and anchovy and out of this world. Also Michael White and Rocky Cirino (manager featured today on eater.com http://eater.com/archives/2009/07/the...) are super sweet!

        1. Novita had them last week.
