Squash blossoms are flowering on menus across town

Squash blossoms are popping up all over -- not just in gardens, but in restaurants. At Beast + Bottle, they make an unexpected topping for flatbread, and at Spuntino they're stuffed with ricotta and fried. The sturdy flowers make an appearance at Tamayo, too, as part of the filling for quesadillas made not with tortillas but masa.

While I wasn't shocked to find them there -- Tamayo is known, after all, for its contemporary take on Mexican cuisine -- I was surprised when the quesadillas actually arrived at the table.

Find out why when my review of Tamayo is posted on westword.com tomorrow.
