Michigan’s Great Fish Fry: Grand Blanc’s Greek Church’s Version

If you're hankering for good fish in Michigan it's not to be found at a fancy restaurant or by a Great Lake side, but at the Assumption Greek Orthodox Church in Grand Blanc.

The church, reported Mlive, has essentially been running a weekly restaurant since 2012 and was voted by the site's readers to have the best fish fry in the Flint and Thumb region, not to mention Greek specialties.

“When we initially started it, it was just literally fish and chips, some shrimp and some clams,” Lori Photiou, a church member who's been volunteering there the whole run said.

The fish fry came out of the cancellation of the parish’s yearly Greek Festival, shut down by the COVID-19 pandemic. “It’s an all-volunteer crew,” Photiou said. “All of us are parishioners of the church. We take pride in it.”

From September to the end of June, the church and about 15 volunteers put on a full fish fry every Friday. Many of the volunteers have restaurant experience, having either owned one or worked at one. “We are running a one day a week restaurant,” Photiou said, serving 400-500 meals.
