fiddlehead ferns at the Berkeley Bowl

Picked up a bunch of these yesterday; I'd never eaten them before, which is usually good enough for me, plus they're kind of cute.

Do any local restaurants serve them? (and in the hands of a chef who understands regional produce, do they taste better than the bitter, muddy aliens that emerged from my fry pan?)

In an era in which wild nettles are appearing on pizzas all over town, and even Brussels sprouts have been rehabilitated (usually courtesy of ample butter and bacon), these could be the next trendy accoutrement. Or maybe they're just horrible.

They do hang off the rim of a cocktail glass nicely; they remind me of those little plastic monkeys in a barrel.
