Sure, we’re excited about summer and the food truck festivals[1] and pop-up beer gardens[2] that come with it, but we’ll miss our spring favorites.

Asparagus, that harbinger of spring, now marks the beginning of summer as its harvest ends. Here are a few spots where you can bid adieu to asparagus before it’s all gone.

Eli Collins at Pub and Kitchen is serving up a chilled asparagus soup with rhubarb, queso fresco, and almonds.

Palladino’s[3] is offering asparagus two ways in a single dish for it’s late spring menu[4]. The plate includes savory asparagus flan, truffled egg salad, shaved asparagus, lemon, Ligurian oil, shaved parmigiano.

A.Kitchen’s[5] new Express lunch menu[6], which we wrote about yesterday offers a chilled asparagus soup accompanied by a fried eggplant cutlet.

Have another favorite asparagus dish, tell us in the comments.
