A message from In Situ

This summer marks the end of In Situ’s five-year operating term at SFMOMA. While we did not imagine finishing our run during a pandemic and extended closure, we are incredibly grateful for this partnership and proud of the unique experience we created together. 

Our collection included over 100 dishes spanning more than 25 countries, 20 U.S cities, and almost 50 years. We served over 200,000 guests and were fortunate to be recognized with a Michelin star, a James Beard Award for Best Restaurant Design and nomination for Best New Restaurant, inclusion as a 50 Best Discovery restaurant, and a write up in The New York Times as “America’s Most Original New Restaurant.”

As we reflect on the scope of work that went into recreating so many dishes – traveling, sourcing custom wares, and even shipping special ingredients directly from restaurants – we thank all of the participants who entrusted us with their recipes. It was an honor to learn from some of the most innovative, talented, and influential chefs in the world and represent them here in San Francisco. Inspired by the spirit of museums, we aimed to be a place of discovery and make our collection of dishes more widely accessible.

Beyond our daily menu, we also tried to explore what an exhibition restaurant at the intersection of art, design, food, and community could be. From hosting events and dinners with guest chefs to creating special menu items inspired by SFMOMA exhibitions, our collaborations were some of the highlights of this whole experience.

We are thankful for the support of the museum and for our extremely hardworking team members who executed such a demanding program each day. Like a special meal or temporary exhibition, this restaurant project was not intended to be permanent. But we worked with passion and dedication in order to create a memorable and engaging in-person experience, something we appreciate now more than ever.

OK
