CARROLL GARDENS — A Park Slope eatery is bringing its signature "flame grilled chicken" to Carroll Gardens in the coming months, the owner said Tuesday.

Purbird will be opening its doors at Henry and Sackett streets in the former location of Maybelle's Cafe, which shuttered last year. 

This will be the second location for the eatery, which first opened its doors in 2011 at Sixth Avenue and St. Marks Avenue in Park Slope.

The menu will be very similar to the one served in Park Slope but with a few new additions that they'll reveal closer to the opening, said owner Christina Comerford Lekkas.

The opening, first spotted by Realty Collective's blog, does not have an exact date as yet, but is expected for "spring-summer" this year, she added.

The family eatery is known for its poultry focus with whole or half-grilled birds, wraps, sandwiches, salads and sides like jalapeno mac & cheese and creamy mashed potatoes.

Purbird will likely serve beer and wine when it opens and is working on securing a full liquor license as well, Comerford Lekkas said. 

The space at 502 Henry St. has long been home to a bakery or cafe. The spot was also featured in the 1987 film "Moonstruck," starring Cher and Nicolas Cage, when it was home to Cammareri Brothers Bakery.
