Lent: Pierogis/Fish Fry — Silver Spring/Wheaton/Etc.
I went to college in Binghamton, NY and many local churches made and sold pierogis for takeout on Friday nights during Lent as a fund-raising opportunity. I have also been fortunate to eat at my share of fish fry Fridays during Lent. I have not seen any signs up at the local churches near me and I was wondering if anyone had some suggestions as to where I could go for these delicious Friday night food fests in the SS/Wheaton area.
This doesn't exist in SS.. However, if you go all the way out to Herndon, VA, you'll find Jimmy's Old Town Tavern, which is a place owned by a guy from Buffalo. They do the Friday night fish fry, have beef on weck, pierogies, etc. My husband is from Buffalo and he loved the place; very authentic, he said.
I've been living in the SS area for a year now and have yet to find a fish fry that wasn't a regular entre from Chilis or Fridays. If you find something, please let me know! I grew up in Buffalo, NY and we did fish fries every Friday during lent. I'm craving a beer battered piece of haddock with coleslaw and french fries. If I find anything, I'll let you know.
Glad to know I'm not the only one jonzing for some hot fish and buttery pierogi. I am starting to think I might have better success looking in Baltimore due to the large polish population and Baltimore's historic ties to the Catholic church. I will not be deterred and I will find somewhere the get my FF on this Lent.
