      Are you looking for the zucchini flowers to make yourself or a restaurant that has them on a menu? You can probably purchase flowers at a farmers market or if any of your neighbors have a gardens, flowers are in abundance now and they make give you some. As for restaurants, they would be few and far between to have flowers on their menu.

      Areo in Bay Ridge has them as a special when they are in season. They are a reason to go eat there alone.

        I had stuffed zucchini flowers a few weeks ago at al di la in Park Slope, and they were excellent. (Though not as good as those in Rome -- but then, what is?) I think they were a special, though, so I don't know if they'd be there now. Might be worth a phone call to find out.

        DiFara used to have them fairly regularly, but I think trying to get them these days would probably be an exercise in futility.

          According to a menupages find-a-food search:

          Armani, Bacaro, Montenapo, San Pietro, Serafina--all midtown except Bacaro. I don't think I've had it outside of the Jewish quarter of Rome. Are you limited to outer boroughs?

            I've been buying zucchini flowers at the Grand Army Plaza greenmarket and making them at home.
