St. Louis restaurants offer a fish fry alternative
The fish roast season is back and just like last year we are facing an abbreviated version of the Lenten tradition. Unlike that time a year ago, we are more familiar with the routines of eating in the pandemic season. So it’s no surprise that 2021-style fish fries include a combination of roadside pick-up and take-away, limited-capacity indoor dining, and outdoor dining on heated patios. Restaurants in the area are an alternative to community fish fries and offer a variety of options.
