What started as a Lenten tradition, the fish sandwich turned into an emblematic dish available in Pittsburgh’s bars and restaurants year-round. The landlocked city’s not stingy with the fish. Wholey’s Fish Market serves two colossal batter-dipped slices of fresh cod that dwarf the bun (a slightly sweet and feathery kaiser roll from Mancini’s Bakery right next door). Take a trip through the fish market to the seating area upstairs, where you can dress up the sandwich with tartar, cocktail or hot sauce. And make sure to grab a container of tangy coleslaw to go with.
