It is Lenten season and for many that means no meat on Fridays, however that doesn’t mean no flavor! Say goodbye to bland, plain fish and hello to these delicious options at some of your favorite local spots!
Fins Seafood & Grille
I don’t know if we can officially start a Lenten-friendly list without Fins! As Findlay’s only locally owned seafood you won’t be lacking for a delicious meal during Lent. Fins is open both for dine-in and takeout – reservations are strongly suggested!
Cedar Valley Cafe
Cedar Valley Cafe specializes in Lebanese and Mediterranean cuisine but we love their salads. They’re large, filling, and nearly all of them are Lenten-friendly. They also have a great variety of vegetarian options, many Lenten-friendly appetizers (they have amazing hommous!), and it is great for the whole family. Cedar Valley is currently open for takeout only.
Logan’s Irish Pub
Is there anything better than a traditional fish and chips? Get it at Logan’s Irish Pub and you won’t be disappointed! Fish and chips is just one of the many Lenten friendly meal options on the menu, and nearly all the appetizer options are also great for Lent. Logan’s is open for dine-in or takeout.
Vivir Modern Mexican
We have to know, what is your favorite Vivir taco? Ours is Cauliflower Dreamin’ – both because it is delicious and it is fun to say. Try out all the vegetarian or fish-based tacos or have them made into a rice bowl at Vivir! Vivir is open for dine-in or takeout (don’t forget the margaritas!)
Have you visited Greenhorn, located in Bluffton, yet? Greenhorn is a vegetarian/vegan restaurant with a menu full of plant-based goodness. The menu changes weekly, check on Facebook for the most up-to-date menu. Greenhorn is open for dine-in or takeout.
