Following such past inventions as this Buckminster Fuller-inspired hot chocolate and the famed Mondrian cake, the café at SFMOMA is now serving this lovely slice of toast inspired by Mark Rothko’s “No. 14, 1960.” The bread is from Acme, and it’s topped with apricot butter and wild blueberry jam, and it’s all in tribute to the painting which is on view as part of the current exhibit Selected Histories: 20th Century Art from the SFMOMA Collection. Sidenote: It’s actually the last onsite exhibit from the museum’s collection that you’ll get to see for three years, because the museum is closing for a massive renovation in June.
