Christopher Sell, chef and owner of Park Slope’s Chip Shop, the British restaurant that put the now famous fried Twinkie on Brooklyn’s map, hopes to open a second outpost on Atlantic Avenue in two weeks. The new location one-ups the first with its full liquor license.

Sell will offer "16 different draft beers, half of them British" in the renovated space, which includes a newly built bar to display Sell’s whisky jug collection; original tin ceilings that were discovered beneath six layers of old paneling; and new mahogany wood inlaid around the restaurant’s storefront entrance.

The menu is identical to the original. Chip Shop devotees will find battered and deep-fried cod and haddock, cod and salmon fishcakes, chicken in the basket, and for ex-pats, steak and kidney pies.

A new addition for dieters about to stray is a deep-fried Atkin’s candy bar. The chips are still as "bloody lovely" as the original menu claims.

The Chip Shop (129 Atlantic Ave. between Henry and Clinton Streets in Brooklyn Heights) accepts American Express, MasterCard and Visa. Entrees: $7-$12.50. The restaurant serves dinner every day, from 5 pm to 11 pm. From 11 pm to 2 am the kitchen offers an abbreviated late night menu. Delivery will be available in Brooklyn Heights. For information call (718) 832-7701.
