Last month we took a weekend trip up the coast to California's most beautiful city San Francisco. We flew up on SWA and checked into the Marriott Marquis. It was an early morning so we took a couple of hours to begin our 2 day museum trek. After a quick tour of Union Square we were off to SFMOMA the finest museum if you want to see iconic contemporary art. Most of the art displayed at SFMOMA once belonged to the Fishers the founders of the Gap. The Doris and Donald Fisher Collection is among the world’s greatest private collections of contemporary art. Founders of San Francisco–based Gap Inc., the couple began collecting prints to enliven the company’s offices in the mid-1970s, and they soon expanded their efforts to include paintings, sculpture, and drawings. The collection includes works by Alexander Calder, Ellsworth Kelly, In Situ. In Situ is the brainchild of Corey Lee who has several award winning restaurants in San Francisco one being Benu. Like a museum Corey Lee honors great chef's signature dishes and offers them on his menu. He rotates the dishes like art exhibitions so you will never get tired of having some of the most creative meals ever devised and served. The menu includes 11 items each of them curated from great chefs and paired with specific wines to bring out the best tastes. On the back of the menu there is an homage to the meal and the chef and the year it was created. These items come in small and medium sized plates so they are perfect for sharing.
