Lake Trout: This Baltimore-inspired Billyburg fish joint is filled with irony and homages, the sort of referential humor the trendy neighborhood is known for. The menu is simple (cheese fish sandwich for $6.50, slaw for $2.75, the eponymous lake trout for $6.25), and the decor is something out of a 1970's broken home, with an open kitchen's counter servicing the brown wooden tables complete with bright orange bowling alley chairs and graffiti is scribbled all over the walls (though the menu board is written out in children's refrigerator magnets). Both the food and the place appear to be messy, but it's a controlled mess. With it's nearly mom-and-pop vibe, tasty seafood treats (the crab cake, at $12.50, is a "splurge," but well worth it), solid beer menu (alas, no Natty Bohemian) and mildly offensive aesthetics, Lake Trout is a new cheap-eat must-visit in Brooklyn.
