Food definitely brings New Orleans Local together. This week will be the second City-Wide, Curbside Fish Fry. It will take place Friday, March 27, 2020, from 4:00pm to 7:30pm. Craig Borges and Drew Knoll from Craig Borges’ New Orleans Seafood Company will be teaming up with local restaurants to offer curbside “fish fry” meals for the next several Fridays during Lent. This week Station 6, GW Fins, Pêche Seafood Grill, Lüke and Ralph’s On The Park will serve the fish focused meals, curbside and to-go, adhering to all safety regulations. Local restaurants are looking for ways to keep customers fed without being open for sit-down meals. Tabasco® has also come aboard and generously pledged to support the fundraising efforts with a matching donation from last week’s fish fry and this week’s fish fry to the Louisiana Hospitality Foundation.
I knew the seafood and hospitality industries were going to suffer and I have a lot of seafood coming in, so I couldn’t think of a better way to help the community, our hospitality workers, and the fishermen who bring this bounty to our tables many who are now facing joblessness. A portion of the proceeds from each “fish-fry” will go directly to the Louisiana Hospitality Foundation earmarked specifically for their Hospitality Industry Worker Crisis Grants so they can assist those with the greatest need. ~ Craig Borges
Restaurants will serve their own menus that will be offering fried or grilled fish options served with a side for $15 per person. Monsignor Christopher Nalty will attend each of the locations and bless the meal.
