st. mary's fish fry: limited lenten engagement

when: fridays, from 5pm to 7pm, through the end of lent. (easter is april 12 this year.)
where: the basement of st. mary's church, on k street across from the capitol building.
what: the best fried fish anywhere.

i was thrilled to remember this from years past. every friday during lent, st. mary's has a fish fry... and i'm serious that it's the best fried fish i've ever had.

it's seven dollars for dinner. you choose one of the following: baked cod, tuna noodle casserole, macaroni and cheese, or two big tasty pieces of deep-fried pollock! then you choose tater tots or baked potato. they offer you cole slaw and bread and pickles. you'll see all the condiments you would expect. there's a dessert table with individually priced items on the other side of the room.

they offer cafeteria-style service and seating. if you eat there, you might look into the all-you-can eat option. if i remember right, it's eleven dollars and sounds dangerous.

That looks so good. At least there's something to look forward to about Lent.
