Behold: Rothko toast, the latest artsy menu item SFMOMA's café on Third Street. Like the work that inspired it ("No. 14, 1960") the toast features two tones of color (apricot butter and wild blueberry jam, in this case). Unlike Rothko's priceless piece, this toast will probably only run you a couple bucks and comes mounted on Acme pain de mie, rather than canvas.

Also on display on the rooftop coffee bar's menu are Donald Judd tomato soup, Damien Hirst "Amylamine" lemon velvet cake and Josef Albers crackers and cheese.


As for the actual works of art: they're currently on exhibit as part of Selected Histories: 20th Century Art from the SFMOMA Collection, which runs until June and will be the last exhibit in the museum proper before it becomes an off-site, pop-up museum for the next three years.
