Hunter's at 213 Smith Street closed its doors during the summer. The popular restaurant and bar offered a nice seasonal American menu and served great drinks in a casual atmosphere. The week-end brunch in particular made this a favorite spot in the neighborhood.
Its replacement, Brocccolino NY, will open in the storefront vacated by Hunter's soon, according to signs in the window. The eatery will be a "contemporary trattoria serving Italian eats such as homemade pasta, pizza and kale caesar salad."
Broccolino will be an outpost of a restaurant by the same name located on Dean Street between 5th Avenue and Flatbush Avenue.
Don't know about you, but I already miss Hunter's. How about you?
Does anyone remember Athena, the greek restaurant that operated at this spot before Hunter's?
