Fabulously Fantastic Fish

Nothing beats March in Louisville, thanks to hoops, Spring, and fried fish. The Fry Guys took a break from the Madness to enjoy dinner at St. Bernadette’s, hosted by St. Mary’s Academy, located in Norton Common’s. As expected this time of year, the gym was filled with red, blue, and the unmistakable, delicious aroma of fried goodness.

Fish
St. Bernadette’s dinner includes your choice of fried or baked fish on white or rye, or an order of fried jumbo shrimp, or an order of fried oysters, and comes with two sides. The fried fish was lightly breaded and thick, giving us fish-lovers another reason to cheer this season.
Fryars’ Score: 3.5

The side dish selection features the usual suspects and included perfectly seasoned green beans and crispy hush puppies.  Cheese pizza was served by the slice.  Save room for the variety of desserts, which for the Fry Guys included chocolate-covered strawberries and lemon bars.

Like the neighborhood surrounding it, St. Bernadette is a new, growing parish, located on the Oldham-Jefferson County line. Norton Commons prides itself on being a great place to live, work, and play, and during this time of year, fry fish with the young and happy parishioners. Bring an extra $5 and get in on the split-the-pot!
Fryars’ Score: 4

Venue
Located just off the Gene Snyder, St. Mary’s gym is big enough to host the largest of Frys. Plenty of seating was available and there was virtually no waiting for your order. The frying goes down in the cafeteria, the grubbing in the gym, and outside there were some youngsters playing hoops. A great venue for all ages.
Fryars’ Score: 4

Overall
The Fry Guys were happy to tip off their Fryday night at St. Bernadette’s, and a good time was had until the final buzzer. We’re calling the trip to Norton Commons a win, and like the Cards and Cats happy to announce we’re moving on to the next round!
