Restaurants serving Fiddle Head Ferns this Spring

Happy Spring!

Time for new tasty seasonal items to hit restaurant menus and I am thrilled to try Fiddle Head Fern's for the first time. Does anyone know of any restaurant's who currently have them on their menu in the Washington, DC area?

      Springfield's a bit far so I'll give my local Wholefood's a shot! Thanks!

    2. Have you checked out the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian Washington, D.C., mitsitam cafe?

      Presently serving fiddlehead salad, also have recipe book that has a fiddlehead dish photo on the cover.

      The chef is friendly and might have some suggestions.

      I enjoyed their fiddlehead salad last year.
