Best Thing We Ate Last Night: Squash by Zaré at Fly Trap

After spending the whole day eating truly weird things for an upcoming episode of Bizarre Bites (subscribe to our YouTube channel to see the series), it was time to seek comfort in vegetables at night. Luckily, Zaré at Fly Trap has a host of new vegetarian and almost-vegetarian items on the menu.

Chef Hoss Zaré is taking full advantage of the season with lots of stone fruit, heirloom tomato and summer squash dishes. A few bites of yellow summer squash stuffed with Persian Kashk Bademjan (smoky eggplant, the sour cream-esque Kashk, mint, walnuts and caramelized onion) and served with walnuts and all the fear factor foods we had eaten all afternoon just became a funny anecdotal memory. The restaurant was recently painted and new floors installed, signaling the beginning of significant refinements to the place as well as the menu. Without giving too much away for now, the Fly Trap is about to go back to the future.
