It was glorious. It was Michelin starred. It was... closed after 14 years of business.
But now, like a majestic phoenix rising from the ashes, it’s back. And it’s made a few upgrades...
Welcome back to Saul, resurrected smack-dab in the middle of the Brooklyn Museum. It’s open for dinner tonight.
Think of this as the Modern of Brooklyn. A pitch-perfect impress-your-date spot in a place where you can also impress your date with a passing knowledge of the works of Kehinde Wiley.
It’s a warm room with a farm table and a wall of wine. Oh, and floor-to-ceiling windows through which you can see a) an exhibit that shows similarities between art from different eras and regions of the world; b) people looking at that exhibit contemplatively.
The menu’s like before, but better. For instance, now there’s Colorado lamb saddle (aka the tenderest part of the lamb) and olive-oil cake. But do the tasting menu. Because you’re eating in a museum, amongst stockpiles of priceless creativity, and that calls for going all out. Plus there’s Canadian porcelet involved.
Don’t Google “Canadian porcelet.”
