The door is closing on Saul Bolton’s restaurant on Smith Street in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn. Sunday will be its last day. But this is a happier story than the usual tale of a lost lease. The restaurant will be reborn in the fall in the Brooklyn Museum, perhaps as the borough’s answer to the Modern. The museum and its food service operator, Restaurant Associates, courted Mr. Bolton. And keeping the original Saul open was not an option. “They wanted it to be moved,” Mr. Bolton said. Yet to be decided are the new name and the fate of the Smith Street location. “We own the building,” Mr. Bolton said. “It’s our retirement.” Brooklyn Museum, 200 Eastern Parkway, Prospect Heights, Brooklyn.
