Il Fiorista sells flowers, offers classes like bouquet making and edible flowers 101, and serves dishes that include chrysanthemums and geraniums. But unless you come to this Nomad spot with all that in mind, you’ll just think it’s another attractive, all-day restaurant near Madison Square Park. Many of the Mediterranean dishes do include flowers, but hibiscus harissa doesn’t add much to the spot prawns and flowering marjoram does little to the very normal strip steak. Besides some excellent sweet potato sourdough, you don’t need to come here for the food, but you should keep the seating at the long bar in mind for casual dates or after-work drinks and snacks around Flatiron.
