Have Your Flowers and Eat Them Too! – Macy’s Flower Show 2016

The 2016 Macy’s Flower Show kicked off last Sunday, March 20th. For those who eat with their eyes, we’ve rounded up seven New York City specialties where you can admire and eat flowers.


  1. Flower Hot Chocolate Dominique Ansel Bakery
    Pour warm milk into the bottle to create your own hot chocolate.
  1. Hibiscus TeaArgo Tea
    Argo Tea has a fruit and flower filled tea menu, and they come iced or hot!
  1. Vanilla Sky CocktailApotheke
    One of Apotheke’s Stress Relievers: Vida Mezcal with Vanilla, Fino Sherry, Raspberry, House-made Lemonade, Pomegranate, Fennel and a delicate flower. I already feel better.

Main Meal

  1. Avocado Salad- Footprints
    You’ll never notice you’re eating a salad with the floral touches (Hack: their Rasta Pasta comes with flowers too!)
  1. Squash Blossoms Stuffed with Shrimp- Alder
    Smoked shrimp and squash wrapped up in a fried squash blossom.


  1. Hibiscus Glazed Donut- Dough
    Obviously, this is more about the donut and less about the hibiscus (but isn’t it pretty?!)
  1. Flower Cookies- Bon Appetit Magazine
    I officially have another excuse to eat cookies.
