F. Scott’s Nine Dine



At Generous Helpings a few weeks ago, I had what seemed like a dozen people come up to me and ask something like this: “Did you try the squash blossoms from F. Scott’s? They were AMAZING.” Unfortunately, my answer was “no, they ran out before I arrived”.

They were definitely a favorite dish of many that night, so I left the event with a nagging feeling that I had missed out on something very special. And just so you know – I don’t like missing out.

So a few days later when I saw someone on Twitter mention that they’d just had the most exceptional squash blossoms at F. Scott’s, I really couldn’t stand it any longer! Now that I knew they were serving them at the restaurant, I had to have them pronto.

No one was exaggerating about this dish. Wow. I think I could eat these every day.

Chef Kevin Ramquist impressed us with more than those blossoms though. I also had what was perhaps the best fried green tomatoes I’ve ever had in my entire life.

If you haven’t ever been to F. Scott’s, I highly suggest checking it out very soon, because you really don’t want to miss out on those special squash blossoms.

And I’ve got a little tip for you: go after 9 pm.

Why? Because every night of the week, food is half price after 9 pm in the dining room. That there is a deal my friends.
