Hooks seafood spot opens in New Orleans’ 7th ward 

  For some, Lent means giving up culinary vices — alcohol, coffee, chocolate — but for others, it is a time to enjoy fried fish.

  Churches across the city play host to Friday fish fries during the Lenten season, but a new 7th Ward restaurant will help fulfill fried-fish (and chicken) cravings seven days a week. Hooks (2100 St. Bernard Ave.) offers an impressive array of fried fish options, including snapper, tilapia, cod and catfish. Fried is the name of the game at Hooks, with other breaded-and-battered options including chicken livers, gizzards, oysters and shrimp. Crawfish pies, crab cakes and hush puppies are available as well. The restaurant also serves ice-cold slushies and house-made desserts like carrot cake.

  Hooks is open 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.
