Any notable Friday Lenten specials?

Does anyone know of any good Lenten specials in Center City or South Philly? Perhaps a restaurant/bar with a fish fry?

    I realize it's not really what you are looking for but Johnny Brenda's in Fishtown has a really good fried fish sandwich.

      Thanks. I've never tried JB's fish sandwich. I will check it out.

      Ippolito's is always crazy busy!

        I almost went there last Friday! It's a few blocks from me. I go there for fresh fish, but have never tried the prepared stuff before.

          The prepared stuff is very good and they will also cook any of the fresh fish to order. But, as you can imagine, Fridays during Lent will be a bit hectic.
