Looking for Fiddleheads in Boston area menus

thefoodster Jun 12, 2011 11:48 PM

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!

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

      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.

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

            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!

              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.

                  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.

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