Buffalo is known for its chicken wings as well as for beef on ‘weck, which I talk
about
briefly in my cookbook. Friday night is fish fry, which is delicious, but not that
good for
you. While working during my college days at the supermarket, on Friday
nights I would
head over to Nero’s Restaurant across the street for a fish fry, which
actually may have
been baked – that’s my choice. The restaurant is nowhere to be
seen after it burned (just
kidding, it’s been replaced with another business.) I do have
memories of the wonderful
accompaniments to the fish, especially the macaroni salad.
The other opportunities for
fish fry on Friday nights at almost every restaurant here
have that same macaroni salad,
the recipe of which I have included below.
