NEW ORLEANS (press release) – Pêche Executive Chef Ryan Prewitt and Chef de Cuisine Nicole Mills have announced a special Friday Whole Fish Fry menu will begin Friday, Feb. 19, and be available through the Lenten season every Friday through April 2, 2021. The special dinner will be available for takeout, delivery, or dine in. A limited number of pre-orders will be taken on Thursdays. The regular seafood-focused à la carte menu will also be available seven days a week, and the chefs will offer weekly seafood specials.
The fish fry dinner will serve three to four people and cost approximately $80 depending on the size of the fish. The meal includes a whole fried Gulf fish (i.e., redfish, flounder, snapper), cocktail sauce, tartar sauce, brabant potatoes, hush puppies, and a salad. The fish will change according to what the fishermen bring in each day.
“While many community fish fries have been canceled due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are thrilled to be able to continue this weekly tradition for our customers,” said Mills. “We encourage patrons to call the day before to place an order because we will have a limited number of fresh, whole fish. But we will have seafood for all 40 days of Lent, so have it delivered, come pick it up, or join us in the dining room. We can’t wait to see you.”
