Whether for Lent or just because, eating fried fish on Friday is always a good idea. Many of these restaurants are participating in the statewide Fish Fry Fridays campaign, with $1 per order going to benefit local hospitality workers. Fried seafood is a thing year-round in New Orleans, but between now and Easter, we especially celebrate the finny filet. While churches are the classic option and often the best value for a plate, this guide focuses on the city’s restaurants serving up particularly enticing riffs on the special. All available for takeout, dine-in, and sometimes delivery.
