Ever wish you could own a piece of a famous restaurant like the venerable Locke-Ober in downtown Boston? Well you can today, in a way. New owners who closed the 137-year-old restaurant in October are auctioning off the contents --- about 250 items --- on Friday, in part to defray the cost of renovating the space where a new restaurant will open next year. About 80 people looked over items for sale at the restaurant’s location at 1-3 Winter St. Friday morning.
