Lake Trout promises to be more low-brow than the pair’s other spots Fette Sau and St. Anselm.
Hoping to make the place, “like any old crappy restaurant in middle America,” Lang says it will serve crab cakes, chicken wings, corn on the cob, and shrimp, all fried. The lake trout sandwich, the restaurant’s namesake that hails from his hometown of Baltimore, is a fried whiting fish fillet with Velveeta cheese sauce, lettuce, tomato, and tartar sauce. The 14-seat restaurant will not have bottled craft beers, but rather cans of Genesee Cream Ale, Ballantine, and original Coors. “I’m not much into all the fancy shit,” Lang said. Lake Trout will be open daily for dine-in and take out.
