Even if you’re not Catholic, any good Pittsburgher embraces Lent because of the fish fries. What’s not to love about fried fish and homemade pierogies swimming in butter and onions?? But if you’re looking to branch out from your neighborhood churches, we’ve rounded up a list of some of our favorite spots to get fish and pierogies. And you know we organized it by neighborhood so you’re covered no matter where you are in the city.

We love that these restaurants serve a mix of styles of fish and pierogies. Of course you’ll find the very classic fried fish or potato and cheese pierogies. But you can also opt for oysters, sushi, or even breakfast pierogies.

Of course, if you want to stick with the traditional fish fries, we fully support that! Our pals at The Post Gazette created this awesome interactive map, so you’re still covered no matter where you are in the city.
