FORT GREENE — A taste of France is coming to Myrtle Avenue.
The owner of the Lower East Side's popular French restaurant Gentleman Farmer, Karim Nounouh, is set to open a new location in Fort Greene next month.
The restaurant, at 378 Myrtle Ave., near Clermont Ave., will “offer a seasonal menu that marries traditional French cuisine with fresh and local New World ingredients, with a special focus on game,” Nounouh told the Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership.
Dubbed Gentleman Farmer’s Fort Greene, the eatery will bring items such as curried snails, foie gras torchon, bison tartar and frogs’ legs in a balsamic-cilantro marinade, plus a wide selection of French wines, to the neighborhood.
Nounouh, who decorated his Lower East Side location with reclaimed wood, copper pots and farmhouse tables, is currently renovating the interior of the Fort Greene space, according to Department of Building records.
Gentleman Farmer’s Fort Greene will replace Huey’s Chueys candy shop, which stayed open for two years, and is set to open in February.
Nounouh was not immediately available for comment.
