So there's no mistaking which Smorgasburg we're visiting, here's the Coney Island Boardwalk, which is down the block from the venue. Eagle photos by Lore Croghan

Bring on the mahi mahi ceviche tacos and the BLT lobster rolls.

Smorgasburg has come to Coney Island.

It’s a smaller version of the open-air food fest than the Smorgasburg operations in Brooklyn Bridge Park and Williamsburg. But the caliber of the food is just as high.

News for those who live, work and play in Brooklyn and beyond

The Coney Island venue is a blacktopped lot at 1320 Bowery that belongs to Thor Equities, where art curator and dealer Jeffrey Deitch has organized an exhibition called Coney Art Walls. See related story.

In addition to a dozen food vendors operating out of shipping containers — including foodie faves Blue Marble Ice Cream, Mile End and Bon Chovie — there’s a bar for the over-21s. The booze service encourages visitors to linger longer among recently painted murals by artists including Ron English, who is known as the Godfather of Street Art.

During its start-up, Coney Island Smorgasburg has been open only on weekends. Starting June 22, it will operate seven days a week.

Our photos offer a sampling of what’s being served at the Snack-O-Rama by the Sea.
