PARK SLOPE — There's one less burger place and one more bakery on Seventh Avenue.

Brooklyn Flipster's, the burger restaurant on Seventh Avenue and Ninth Street where a cow statue welcomed diners, closed this past weekend.

An employee who answered the phone said the business had "run its course" and that the restaurant's lease was up.

Other recent comings and goings on the local restaurant and retail scene include:

► A bakery and coffee shop called Les Deux Amis is moving into 427B Seventh Ave., near 15th Street, in the small spot that was last occupied by La Botaneria. A sign in the window says it will be serving "deli style breakfast."

One Medical Group, a members-only doctors' office that promises "24/7 access" and appointments that start on time 95 percent of the time, is opening next month at 794 Union St. (off Seventh Avenue), where Laytner's Linen & Home was.

► The French cookie company Michel et Augustin is moving its corporate headquarters to Gowanus next month, the Brooklyn Paper reported. The cookie makers will host monthly tasting sessions and baking classes at its new location on Fourth Avenue and Bond Street, according to the paper.

Dime Savings Bank of Williamsburgh will move into the space at 208 Fifth Ave. (on the corner of Union Street) that was previously occupied by the clothing boutique Something Else, the Commercial Observer reported. The bank will renovate the space and open in roughly six months, according to the Commercial Observer.

► The Italian cafe that's slated to open on Eighth Avenue and 11th Street has finally secured construction permits and is set to start renovating the space, the owners announced on Facebook. Pastificio Flora plans to serve authentic Italian fare that won't include "classic" dishes such as chicken parm.

► The Cantonese restaurant 2 Duck Goose at 400 Fourth Ave. (near Sixth Street) closed recently and will reopen in the spring as a new restaurant, Eater reported. Owner Kay Ch'ien told Eater she's taking a trip to Asia to find inspiration for the new eatery.
