Buca di Beppo’s Delicious Dining Ideas for Lent

Considered the holiest time of year, the spring season not only signifies warmer days and blooming landscapes, it also represents a time for reflection and renewal. It is during this Lenten season that Christians prepare for the celebration of Easter with prayer, penance and sacrifice.

Here at Buca, we understand the importance of spiritual disciplines and rituals, which is why we offer our guests a variety of delicious dining ideas for Lent. Our large menu selection of meatless appetizers, salads, pastas and entrées, is prepared family-style to encourage sharing among family and friends. Buca’s comfortable dining rooms are filled with large communal tables and adorned with vintage photographs, giving guests the feeling of dining at a good friend’s home.

Enjoy Buca’s Meatless Lunch and Dinner Choices During Lent

One well-known tradition that accompanies the Lent season is to refrain from eating meat on Fridays. This can make things a little more challenging when looking for a great place to dine.

Well, we have good news! In honor of our Italian traditions of food, fellowship and hospitality, as well as the Lenten season, Buca offers a variety of fish and vegetarian dishes sure to please even the pickiest of eaters. From tasty appetizers of steamed mussels and fresh tomato bruschetta, to crisp mixed-green salads and warm garlic bread, this is just the beginning to our diverse menu. Below is list of our heartier meatless dishes featuring our special menu item – Linguine and Clams. This delightful seafood dish is tossed with whole baby clams and served in your choice of red or white sauce. Of course we can’t forget dessert! Did I hear double dark chocolate cake, tiramisu or homemade cheesecake?!
