In Situ at SFMOMA

In Situ restaurant at SFMOMA serves replicas of iconic dishes from well-known fine dining establishments around the world. What an exciting concept, for a diner to try these dishes, but also for the kitchen staff to learn from and inspire each other.

One of my servers/cooks had landed four days prior from Barcelona. He had worked previously at Enigma, Tickets and Disfrutar. What a special place. Restaurants like In Situ should be adjacent to every art museum in the entire world.

As planned, I had lunch at In Situ and went to SFMOMA afterwards, and was pleasantly surprised that there was a Magritte exhibit in full swing.

Sitting a table away, this man ordered the exact same things as I did. We tried to name our top five restaurants and both put Momofuku Ko. in our top three!

 

Magritte at SFMOMA
“Everything we see hides another thing, we always want to see what is hidden by what we see.”  The Son of Man (1964) Magritte
Warhol
Warhol. One of my biggest inspirations when I was in art school. I was fascinated by the people he hung out with and the things he did when he wasn’t painting. I wanted to be one of those people who went to lunch with him and hung out at The Factory. Alas, I’m a mom living in the ‘burbs with incredible kids. Close enough.
