CARROLL GARDENS — A long-shuttered Court Street venue once home to the fondue-and-wine bar The Bourgeois Pig is set to reopen as a raw fish-inspired eatery.

Bergen Hill, owned by Bourgeois Pig restaurateur Ravi Derossi, will offer crudos, carpaccios and tartares when it opens at 387 Court St. this Friday, the restaurant said in an email. The space has been closed for renovations since December.

The new menu includes dishes like tuna pica with black currant and toasted almond, as well as Hamachi (more commonly known as yellowtail) with red onion, avocado, a chili-pepper and yuzu paste, Time Out reports.

Derossi, who also has a Bourgeois Pig location in the East Village, is teaming up with Daniel Kessler, guitarist for New York City rock band Interpol, and Andrew D’Ambrosi, alum of reality show “Top Chef.” Derossi also owns Death & Company and Proletariat.

While the restaurant was set to launch Sept. 3, Derossi said in an email that the opening was delayed.

Derossi did not immediately respond to further requests for comment.

Seafood-complementing beverages will be served, like “The Day-Boat Cobbler” with sherry, white rum, cane syrup, orange juice and salt, as well as “Agave Orchard” with tequila, apple brandy, Cocchi Americano and celery bitters, Time Out reported.
