TASTE News Service, January 16, 2018 - While enjoying the modern and contemporary art on display at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA), visitors can also take advantage of innovative dining options from local-based coffee to California fusion with a view, to re-imagined fine dining with dishes that are works of art unto themselves.

Sightglass Coffee at SFMOMA

San Francisco-based independent coffee company Sightglass operates a coffee bar on the third floor of the museum, with a selection of handcrafted coffee beverages and tempting pastries. Sightglass is locally renowned for its attention to quality throughout the production process, emphasizing close relationships with its global network of producers to connect the cup to the wider world. Located adjacent to the Photography Interpretive Gallery, Sightglass at SFMOMA is a place to reflect on and connect with the collection of the Pritzker Center for Photography.

Cafe 5

Enjoy family-friendly, California-fusion fare in SFMOMA's tranquil cafe alongside the sculpture garden on the museum's fifth floor. Operated by McCalls Catering, Cafe 5 features high-quality seasonal ingredients in its flatbreads, organic salads and artisan sandwiches, along with coffee from iconic Italian roaster illy and wines by Meiomi and Kim Crawford. For groups and corporate events at the museum, Café 5 can offer boxed lunches and drink vouchers.

In Situ

Called “the most original restaurant in the United States” by "The New York Times," In Situ is the flagship restaurant at SFMOMA. Michelin-three-starred Chef Corey Lee reimagines the traditional restaurant experience by curating and executing a menu of dishes from recipes created by over 80 chefs from around the world. Working closely with each chef to faithfully represent their dishes' technique and spirit, Lee also rotates the a la carte menu to balance seasonality, style and geography. Adjacent to the museum's Third Street entrance, In Situ's space was designed by San Francisco's Aidlin Darling Design and aims to engage all of the senses with an emphasis on acoustics and tactility in a sleek, comfortable and open environment that features two commissions by artists Tucker Nichols and Rosana Castrillo Diaz. In Situ serves both lunch and dinner in both its lounge and dining room, and is open beyond the museum's hours. For more information and reservations visit In Situ online. Insitu.sfmoma.org
