Lent 2024 food deals: Restaurants offering discounts on fish and new seafood menu items

USA TODAY

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, a 40-day season of prayer, fasting and giving that Catholics and some Christians observe as a time of repentance and closeness to God in preparation of Easter.

During this time of sacrifice and repentance, Catholics get to choose what they'd like to give up from Ash Wednesday until Lent ends on either March 29 (Good Friday) or March 30 (Holy Saturday), depending on the denomination.

Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are customarily days of fasting and abstinence, as determined by the church, though Catholics are encouraged to abstain from meat on Fridays during the 40-day Lent season.

But while meat might be a no-go for Catholics on Fridays during Lent, the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis says the following items can be eaten:

  • Fish
  • Shrimp
  • Crab
  • Lobster
  • Shellfish

With that in mind, here are some restaurants offering special deals and bringing back seafood-inspired menu items during the Lenten season.
