It’s Friday, it’s Lent. Need a new fish fix?


When Lent rolls around, it seems every Pittsburgh eatery has a Friday fish sandwich. Even if you’re not Catholic, if you’re a Pittsburgher, you’re probably going to eat a fish sandwich (or maybe too many) before April 1.

Tired of the usual breaded cod? Here are a few offbeat choices:

• Start with a free sandwich — Primanti’s has them, if you also eat there earlier in the week.

• Forget the sandwich, try something pescetarian yet bunless at The Original Oyster House.

• Go upscale at Poros in Market Square (the fish tempura sandwich).

• Or try a classic in The Strip District, Wholey’s.
