Saul Bolton has partnered with Restaurant Associates to move his fourteen-year-old namesake restaurant from Smith Street to the Brooklyn Museum in Prospect Heights. The 87-seat space is larger than the original, and it's outfitted with arty touches like hand-blown glass fixtures, murals, and a floor-to-ceiling view of the museum's permanent installation, "Connecting Cultures." Some old favorites have remained on the menu, but there are a few additions: sunchoke soup with candied sunflower seeds, Colorado lamb saddle, and steamed chocolate cake. Bolton is also overseeing the Counter at the Brooklyn Museum, a more casual spot for brunch and lunch. The restaurant officially opens tomorrow for dinner service and reservations are accepted. Take a look at a few of the dishes, the space, and the menus, straight ahead.
