BOERUM HILL — The owners of three popular Brooklyn bars are slated to open their newest eatery on Smith Street.

Fawkner, at 191 Smith St., will be the latest addition to the neighborhood's food and drink scene from City Farm Corp., which manages The Bell House, Union Hall and Floyd.

The venue will take over the former location of Ceol, an Irish pub that shuttered in October 2014. 

The new tavern was envisioned as a gastropub, co-owners Jim Carden and Kevin Avanzato told Community Board 6's licenses and permits committee earlier this year.

At the time, Avanzato said they planned to serve "designer sandwiches" but the menu was still being finalized. 

In a statement Wednesday afternoon, the group said they would officially open Sept. 19 at noon with wine, cocktails and beer from independent and local breweries.

Some of Fawkner's sandwiches will include a Fried Chicken Sandwich with deep-fried buttermilk chicken, chow-chow, corn pudding and onion strings on a hero with a maple syrup dipper and a Steak and Eggs option with shaved ribeye, carmelized onions, american cheese and two sunny-side eggs on a hero.

The eatery's interior, designed by Carden and Avanzato, was inspired by the American Museum of Natural History, the release said.

Fawkener's hours will be noon to 4 a.m. on weekends and 4 p.m. to 4 a.m. during the week. Lunch service will be added to the bar soon.
