The Early Word on In Situ, Corey Lee’s SF Museum Restaurant

The Early Word on In Situ, Corey Lee’s SF Museum Restaurant Acclaimed chef Corey Lee debuted his newest project in June inside the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and there couldn’t be a more appropriate setting: As Lee told the Wall Street Journal, "I want to do something that best represents what a museum does. While the chef is known for serving wildly creative, intricate (and expensive) tasting menu fare at his Michelin-starred restaurant Benu, he’s taken a very different approach at In Situ: He’s replicating dishes from some of the world’s best-known chefs, from David Chang to René Redzepi. Shamelessly ripping off other restaurant’s dishes may seem like a head-scratching concept for a restaurant, but Lee attributes each dish to its creator on the menu, and even traveled around the globe to visit or otherwise corresponded with each chef in order to properly replicate their food.

Sydney Opera House set for acoustic upgrade

A view of the Sydney Opera House in Sydney on August 11, 2016. The Sydney Opera House is set to undergo a multi-million-dollar overhaul, with an emphasis on improving its acoustics, once described as worse than an aircraft hangar, officials said Thursday.

Describing the landmark as a "symbol of modern Australia", New South Wales state deputy Premier Troy Grant said the renovations were necessary to help the Opera House -- the country's busiest performing arts centre -- meet demand.
