Corey Lee's latest project, In Situ, is one of the summer's most anticipated restaurant openings, which is sure to live up to the hype as Lee's reputation precedes him. Situated on the ground floor of the newly renovated San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, In Situ's' unique menu features a collection of dishes from over 80 chefs from around the world, recreated by Lee. In Situ offers an engaging cultural and educational experience, rather than traditional dining, and allows patrons to try memorable food that isn't easily accessible otherwise. While the dishes are not originally created by Lee, the concept aims to 'keep [the chef's] work alive so that more people can enjoy and experience it'.The restaurant is divided into two sections - one area has traditional seating and a sit down menu of around 15 dishes while the other area is more casual and allows for communal dining. In Situ's' opening hours are from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. with an extended opening time until 9:00 p.m. during the first few weeks. Reservations will be accepted for parties of 8 or less through their website, beginning June 11th.Want to know more about what's being served at In Situ?

Chef Corey Lee is expanding his culinary presence with In Situ, his new restaurant set to open next year in the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. For the menu, Lee decided to do something different - he asked more than 80 top Chefs from around the world to submit their signature recipes with the full intention of recreating them.
In August 2015, Lee traveled to Hong Kong to learn 3 of these recipes bound for the In Situ menu, including one from Matt Abergel, Co-Owner and Executive Chef of Yardbird, RONIN and Sunday's Grocery.
