In this article about male friendships, there are two references to "dish":

"Well, what do you have for me?" Dish, she meant – like maybe some of that marital strife.


"What do you got for me? Any dish?"

I'm a pretty confident non-native speaker, and I know it refers to neither food nor plates and bowls nor antennas. Nor this sexist talk.

I'm pretty sure this is about gossip or something in that area but I couldn't find any sources.

It means should be patter. We can replace patter.
