I am just delighted to announce the wonderful news that this fall, Brooklyn’s acclaimed Michelin star restaurant, Saul, will move from its current location in Boerum Hill to a new and larger space here at the Brooklyn Museum. Many of you may have been loyal patrons of the restaurant during its pioneering run on Smith Street over the last 14 years.
We believe that the new Saul at the Brooklyn Museum will become an exciting destination for dining, and a thrilling opportunity for us to affiliate with an iconic Brooklyn institution with a mission so aligned to our own–together we will champion both Brooklyn artists and the vibrant Brooklyn food community. The new restaurant, a partnership among the Brooklyn Museum, Chef Saul Bolton, and Restaurant Associates, will provide seated lunch and dinner service in the newly renovated restaurant space on the first floor adjacent to the Café, which will continue its informal self-service, both now enhanced by the new outdoor Terrace. Access will be available through the front of Museum (come by subway!) and through the South Entrance (come by car!).
As with the acclaimed menu on Smith Street, Saul will utilize seasonal and artisanal ingredients to create his signature à la carte and chef’s tasting menus, which will now be expanded from only dinner also to include lunch and brunch. Come fall, the restaurant will open for lunch and dinner on Wednesdays through Sundays and for brunch on the weekends.
Our community is like none other, and we hope you will enjoy this amazing new addition. Please join us in welcoming Chef Saul and Lisa Bolton, and their exceptional staff to the Brooklyn Museum. We’ll keep you posted over the next few months on our exciting progress towards the opening in the fall!
