Housed in a former auto shop on a corner in gentrifying Bushwick, Montana's Trail House -- with its barnyard-wood planks, faded American flags, and mounted taxidermy -- serves as a kind of caricature of the "rustic-chic" wave sweeping the borough. The menu is inspired by calorie-rich Appalachian fare: fried chicken comes with slaw and honey-butter, while brisket is braised in root beer. The ingredient-heavy cocktail list is no backwater affair though: the Curse Thrower contains rye, amaro, mezcal, orange bitters, and Demerara sugar. But true to the spot's dust-road inspirations, Bud is offered three ways: by the can, bottle, or on tap. A hidden bookshelf door gives way to a "secret" side patio, while the outdoor space out front suits summertime sippers.
