Lenten Fish Fridays: Schnitzel & Things Cod Schnitzel

Cod Schnitzel from Schnitzel and Things

While veal, pork and the Schnitz Burger might get all the play here at Midtown Lunch, this is another schnitz. A Lenten Friday friendly schnitz. A cod schnitz.  The cod schnitzel was one of the very first things I ordered from Schnitzel & Things when they first hit the streets in July of 2009. Available at the truck and S & T’s brick and morter as both a sandwich ($8 on the truck/$8.50 at the store) and a platter with two sides ($10 on the truck/$9.95 at the store). The cod is tender and not overly fishy and the breading gives it a wonderful crunch. While the sandwich will run you more than a filet o’ fish or a fried fish sandwich from Kim’s Aunt, it’s a high quality fish and price-wise it is on par with the Oyster Bar’s fish sandwich options. If you don’t mind paying a little more for your fried fish lunch, this is a good one to try.

The truck is on 52nd and Lex today, or you can head over to their new storefront.

    As I stated in the write-up of the opening of the brick-and-mortar establishment, expect cold cod if you purchase from the storefront. I tried the cod platter earlier this week and, while the taste was good, it was simply cold. The product is clearly fried well in advance of being served.

  • I saw on the Twitter Tracker that they said: “We switched things around in the store so the Schnitz comes out to order. The food was coming out a bit cold so we fixed it : ) thx 4 comments”


    Hopefully this will solve the issue!
