Who Knew…?

In most common usage, a “Barry White-fish salad (or, simply “some Barry Whitefish”) refers to a social gathering of African-Americans and Jews, where a fish platter is enjoyed. They seem to be especially popular in New York City and Santa Fe, New Mexico.



A Barry Manilow-Fish Salad has a totally different vibe, and doesn’t have much appeal to African-Americans (or many Jews with good taste for that matter).
