RE: Lake Perch dinner in the Lake George, N,Y.. area
I grew up in Dunkirk, N.Y which is south of Buffalo, on Lake Erie. I went to college in Oswego, N.Y on Lake Ontario. (When I first got to Oswego my room mate from Long Island asked me if Buffalo was in the mid-west. Believe me it's not.) We had Lake Perch all the time. Growing up in a predominantly Roman Catholic community we had Fish Frys every Friday. This was generally Lake Perch. My cousin's husband actually had a fishing boat that would go out every morning. (I decided to go to college).
I digress. My first wife was born and raised in Glens Falls, N.Y. Her family had a summer house in Warrenton,N.Y. and she worked in several restaurants in Lake George. I have not been up there in five years but I do not recall ever seeing Lake Perch on a menu. Google "Lake George, NY Resaurants" and you will be provided with several menus but I did not see any Lake Perch. However, get a local newspaper on Wednesday or Thursday and look for ads for the local fire houses, American Legions, VFW, Churchs and the like having "Friday Fish Frys". You may find what you are looking for.
