Franktuary is introducing two menu items that will give practicing Catholics more food options during the Lenten season and appeal to diners regardless of their religious affiliation. Both items will be available in Downtown Pittsburgh and in Lawrenceville.
A frankfurter made from wild-caught salmon, dubbed the fishfurter, will be available from Ash Wednesday, February 13, 2013, through Good Friday, March 29, 2013. Lentil Soup, emphasis on the Lent, will also be available over the same time period. Other Lent friendly Franktuary menu fixtures include freshly prepared salads, poutine (Lawrenceville), kettle cooked potato chips (Downtown), vegetarian sausages, and baked beans.
During the month of February, Franktuary will also be featuring a frankfurter with the flavor of New Orleans in honor of Mardi Gras. Known as the NOLA, it features muffaletta style olive salad, cubed salami, and provolone cheese.
Franktuary has two locations and a food truck. Its original space is located in the back of Trinity Cathedral (325 Oliver Avenue) in downtown Pittsburgh and operates from 10 am to 3 pm, Monday through Friday. Its Lawrenceville location is on 3810 Butler Street, offers a full bar, and keeps hours of 11 am to midnight Monday through Thursday and 11 am to 2 am on Friday and Saturday. The food truck operates seasonally.
