      I was beyond happy with Alden & Harlow's use of fiddleheads, particularly discovering how wonderful these are lightly pickled (served with heirloom egg, boquerones and something crunchy maybe guanciale?). Am determined to pickle them now. They were also in a cauliflower romesco dish (I think it was that one).

    2. Cafe Sushi has them pickled on the vegetable sushi menu. The pickling produces a unique taste, may not be for everyone.

        Came here to say this. I liked Cafe Sushi’s fiddlehead sushi just fine - although I was surprised by the sushi shape (the same “boat” shape you find with salmon roe sushi. High ratio of rice to fiddlehead in my mind, although they surely know much better than I.

      2. I've seen them at both Bergamot as a side dish as well as at Ribelle on one of their pasta dishes.

        1. Mei Mei (both restaurant and truck) has been serving them. At the truck today they had tempura fiddleheads.

          1. They were an accompaniment to the steak tartare at Sarma. Formaggio Kitchen has beautiful ones to buy and cook at home.
