Around the Corner

Those who drank the last Christmas Ale are in luck. Around the Corner offers Christmas Ale beer-battered fried cod coated with a sprinkle of pepper and salt. "We usually use regular beer, but when we use Christmas Ale it tastes a little better," says Matt Krivosh, general manager. Get there early since seating tends to fill on Fridays during Lent. And don't wait to make the trip. "We save the beer. By the end of Lent, we do run out," says Krivosh. $11.99. Daily 3 p.m to close, open on Good Friday. Around the Corner, 18616 Detroit Road, Lakewood, 216-521-4413,

Firehouse Grille and Pub
Mouth-watering side dishes await your taste buds at this all-you-can-eat fish fry. Pair your beer-battered or broiled cod with coleslaw, french fries, onion straws, or seasoned veggies. The Freddie Fries are a special treat on the menu. "These are beer-battered fried potato spears topped with Parmesan cheese," says Marty Graham, owner and operator. Satisfy your cravings and plan to eat all night. $10.95. Fridays, year-round, 11 a.m. to 2 a.m., Firehouse Grille and Pub, 2768 Stark Drive, Willoughby Hills, 440-943-4983,

Hudson's Restaurant
Chefs Kevin and J.J. Altomare prove fish doesn't have to be served crispy with a side of fries. The brothers cook up lobster mac and cheese, made with lumps of lobster tossed with shell pasta and a rich blend of provolone, cheddar, American and fontina cheeses, just for Lent. "We give you such a big portion, after a salad and pasta, you definitely have stuff to take home," says Kendra Altomare of this creamy conction. $17.99. Starts Ash Wednesday, Fridays, noon to close. Hudson's Restaurant, 80 N. Main St., 330-650-1955,

St. Clarence
Leave it to a foodie to focus on the meal before the money at a fish fry fundraiser. "I'm particular about what I eat, [and] I know enough about food to be dangerous," says Rick Albertini, sixth annual fish fry organizer and St. Clarence parishioner. Each Lent, Albertini and St. Clarence parishioners serve up lake perch, homemade pierogies and coleslaw to 1,200 guests from throughout Northeast Ohio. But the real draw is the french fries. "We serve the best french fries I could get," he says. "[It's] arguably the best tasting fry in the business." $10. Fridays only, 4:30 to 7 p.m. St. Clarence, 30106 Lorain Road, North Olmsted, 440-734-2414,

St. Dominic Church
The jumbo coconut shrimp is just one of the reasons to check out this church's fish fry. "The shrimp is savory and meaty with a sweet coconut crunch," says Kathleen Pullella, fish fry coordinator. She brings her years of customer service and restaurant management experience to St. Dominic's fish fry. "We make all of our food from scratch and in-house," she says. Other offerings include lemon pepper baked cod loins and sweet potatoes. $8-$10. Fridays starting March 7 through April 11, 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., St. Dominic School cafeteria, 3455 Norwood Road, Shaker Heights, 216-991-1444,

St. John Neumann Church
Enjoy a true sit-down dining experience as volunteers from the parish serve you baked and fried fish dinners and pierogi dishes. "Our fish fry provides a restaurant-style experience with hostesses and servers," says Fran Gesten, parish secretary and fish fry coordinator. Entertainment for the evening also includes a polka band, a magician, and a clown skilled at balloon creations. All proceeds from the final Friday fish fry on April 11 help to benefit the local community and their diocesan mission in El Salvador. $7-$10. Fridays beginning March 14 through April 11, 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., St. John Neumann Church, 16271 Pearl Road, Strongsville, 440-238-1770,

St. Mary Romanian Orthodox Cathedral
Get a plateful of culture with your pike at the first Romanian Orthodox Church in the country. While feasting, family and friends gobble up Romanian history depicted on the 98-foot-long, hammered copper frieze from the 1939 World's Fair lining the upper walls of the social hall. "It depicts the entire Romanian history for 2,000 years — the battles and kings," says the Rev. Remus Grama, pastor of St. Mary Romanian Orthodox Cathedral. $7 to $11. Fridays starting Feb. 28, 5 to 8 p.m. St. Mary's Romanian Orthodox Church, 3256 Warren Road, Cleveland, 216-941-5550,

St. Teresa of Avila
If you crave fried fish like a cheesy gordita, try St. Teresa of Avila's drive-thru. "Guests only have to wait five to10 minutes. They don't have to get out of the car, and they're on their way," says fish fry organizer Carol Yonkof. Just because Lake Erie perch and parsley potatoes and a plethora of pierogies (the ones Michael Symon uses in his restaurants) are doled out fast, the church doesn't scrimp on portions or choices. "By going through the drive-thru, they don't lose anything. We cover a multitude of sins with our food," jokes Yonkof. $10 to $14. Fridays starting March 7, open on Good Friday, 4:30 to 7 p.m. St. Teresa of Avila, Sheffield Village, 1878 Abbe Road, 440-934-4227,

Sterle's Country House
Transport to an old-world Eastern European destination when you walk into this German beer hall. Stained glass windows and murals of Slovenian history surround you while you enjoy the upbeat music offerings of the in-house band Polka Pirates. "We usually have a packed house, and you'll meet first through fourth generation families dancing on our dance floor," says James Gibson, general manager. Celebrating their 60th anniversary this year, Sterle's Country House provides a robust beer list with five house beers and an energetic atmosphere to start a new tradition for your family. $10-$15. Fridays, year-round, 11:30 a.m. to close, Sterle's Country House, 1401 E. 55th St., Cleveland, 216-881-4181,

Washington Place Bistro and Inn
This East Side spot is trading old-school fish-and-chips for the new-vogue Chestnut-Sage Pierogi. "It's a very rich, hearty dish with a bit of sweetness form the chestnuts, and it's great for this weather," says Megan Lefebvre, the general manager. The decadent local-supplied, truffle-potato dumplings are filled with butternut squash puree and covered in a tangy blue cheese creme fraiche, sprinkled with toasted pine nuts. $8. Daily, hours vary, Washington Place Bistro and Inn, 2203 Cornell Road, Cleveland, 216-791-6500,
