BOERUM HILL — Park Slope trattoria Broccolino is opening a new restaurant on Smith Street next month, its owner said. 

The new eatery — Broccolino's second location — will take over the former location of Hunter's at 213 Smith St., a neighborhood restaurant that closed earlier this year.

Smith Street's Broccolino is expected to open toward the end of November, owner Giuseppe Piazzolla said Wednesday. The space will hold about 50 to 60 seats and is roughly twice the size of the current Park Slope location at 446A Dean St. near the Barclays Center, he said.

The menu at both locations will have similar offerings, though Piazzolla plans to add "main courses like fish and meat" to the larger Smith Street location.

"It's going to be a little different," he said.

Other openings and closings in the neighborhood include:

► Homage Brooklyn, a skate shop, closed its 64 Bergen St. location and has reopened at 615 Degraw St. in Gowanus, according to a note posted on its former storefront.

► Marshalls is opening a new Brooklyn location at 241 Atlantic Ave. The grand opening is scheduled for Nov. 17, according to its website.

► The owner of East One Coffee Roasters is opening a new "brunch-oriented" restaurant at the former location of Casa Rosa Italian, at 384 Court St., Patch reports.

► A "For Rent" sign has gone up over Marietta's, an old-fashioned clothing shop in Carroll Gardens, according to Pardon Me For Asking. Joe and Matt Chirico had run the shop for decades after taking over from their mother, an Italian immigrant. Both brothers died in recent years. Carroll Gardens Realty did not respond to a request for comment. It was not immediately clear whether the shop had been permanently shuttered.
