Good news for folks who live in Boerum Hill. Looks like the former Met Foods at 205 Smith Street is going to become another supermarket, according to a Brownstoner reader who spoke to a construction worker at the site.

Building plans filed last year reveal the owner is adding a second floor to the building, and both stories will be stores.

Park Slope’s 5th Avenue is getting a new seasonal American restaurant with a wood-fired oven at its center, a Brownstoner reader has told us. We initially thought it would be the high-end, custom-built Stefano Ferrara oven used by the space’s previous tenant, the pizza spot Brooklyn Central, which closed last summer. But a representative for the restaurant told Brownstoner there is a new one, also custom-built, on its way.
