CLINTON HILL — Biggie's corner might soon be an open-air French sidewalk café.

The owners of Three Letters French and American bistro are hoping to add 30 tables and 15 chairs to the corner of Fulton Street and St. James Place in Clinton Hill.

The eatery, which opened early last year at 930 Fulton St. where there is a push to name the corner "Christopher Wallace Way" after the late rapper who grew up a few doors down, hopes to serve brunch, wine punches and champagne cocktails al fresco.

"The sidewalk is deep on both sides so I am pretty excited to have seating all around," said Chef Pip Freeman. "I am also planning to add planter boxes and lots of greenery to make the outside more inviting."

The restaurant that pays homage to the Brooklyn icon — who was killed in a drive-by shooting in 1997 — with custom made Biggie wallpaper, is known for its Moules Poutine that consists of mussels, fries and mushroom white wine gravy, fried pickles and duck liver mousse.

Pending approval by Community Board 2's Transportation Committee the owners plan to start operating the sidewalk café in June.
