After being closed for almost three years, the museum unveiled its major expansion in May of 2016. The reason for this post is due to a news program I saw recently. Besides the art program, the museum has revamped its dining program. This is where it get really cool!

Besides the main dining program I’m going to talk about, there are two other dining options. San Francisco’s own Sightglass Coffee on the third floor,and Cafe 5 which serves light California-fusion fare, on the fifth.

A new restaurant from three Micheliln-starred chef Corey Lee is open until 11 pm., even after the art gallery closes. The restaurant called, In Situ, features dishes from big names chefs like Rene Redzepi, Alice Waters, and Thomas Keller. These are recipes in which chef Lee has traveled to learn.

When I was watching this program, and seeing the finished dishes by chef Lee, I was amazed.The dishes are a collaboration of the world’s top chefs collection of global cuisine’s greatest hits. The food is treated as artistic property, and the restaurant is the gallery.

Chef Lee with his chef Brandon Rogers has worked with almost 100 chefs from around the world. Some sent recipes, some sent sketches, and some demonstrated their dishes in person.

“They chose a dish from their repertoire, or they came up with a dish that we will learn to make on their behalf at the museum.,” Lee says.
