Fish Sangwich from Lake Trout, Dish #54


Welcome to 100 Dishes to Eat Now, the tasty countdown leading up to our "Best of 2012" issue. Tune in every day (weekends, too!) for a new dish from the Fork in the Road team.

Fish Sangwich

Matt Lang and Joe Carroll, the duo behind Fette Sau, recently opened Lake Trout (on the same block as Blue Collar, the unfortunately titled spot that does a great fast-food-style burger). Lake Trout wants to channel the grimy charm of a cheap, lovable Baltimore fish joint. There are orange plastic seats, a few posters of baseball players on the dark walls, and Baltimore favorites on the menu, like lake trout, a simple dish of fried fish and sliced white bread. It so happened on the afternoon I stopped in that the place was full of men, only men, eating lake trout. The mood was grim, but the cheese fish sangwich -- a little fried patty of pollock with tartar sauce, tomato, shredded lettuce, and Velveeta -- made for a nice, summery lunch.
