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

    1. 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?

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

        1. 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.

          2. I'm not limited to the outer boroughs, I posted this question on the manhattan board too. Thanks!

              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.
