Lent season is here, and many of us are forgoing the traditional meat centered dishes, and opting for fish dinners instead. There are a handful of Utica area fish fries for you to check out. 

Let's face it, giving up pork or chicken breasts doesn't seem like a dramatic sacrifice when the other "non-meat" your eating is a delicious, and crispy piece of beer battered Cod or Haddock. Here are 5 fish fries you can feast on.
