Looking for Fiddleheads in Boston area menus

Hello everyone,

Any tips on local restos currently using fiddleheads in their dishes? My only constraint is the necessity to use public transportation.

Thank you!

  1. Craigie currently has them as a side (red line T to Central square)

    1. Tavalo also had them as a side dish recently. It's literally next to Ashmont station.

      Call first to make sure they are still offering them, as they change up the menu a lot.

      1. I've seen them on menus at East By Northeast, Erbaluce, No. 9, Deuxave, Rialto, Bondir, EVOO, T.W. Food, EVOO, The Gallows, and The Haven.

          Parsons Table in Winchester had 'em as a side, last I checked.

        2. I know this isn't what you mean, but Coppa is using Fiddlehead Tomme a beautiful cheese in their arugula salad. :) Really enjoyed the fiddleheads at East by Northeast recently, although I find their menu very hit or miss.

          1. Not a restaurant, but Wilson Farm in Lexington is selling their own pickled fiddleheads right now. They are very tasty!

              Thanks everyone. Sounds like I'll be embarking on a Fiddlehead Fantasy tour of some sort due to your suggestions. Will report back!

            2. Don't know if they still do, but Plough & Stars were advertising some specials w/ them not too long ago

              1. Oleana is a tremendous spot w/ a tremendous fiddleheads dish; likely requiring a bus or walkng partway.

                1. Hungry Mother (Red Line to Kendall) currently has them as a side to their trout. They do them very well there.

                    The fiddlehead-morel dish I had a few days ago at Erbaluce was just fantastic.

                  2. Not sure if bakeries count, but I had a delicious fiddlehead quiche at Canto 6 last weekend.
