San Francisco Flower Mart: All of the local florists arrive at this marketplace well before the sun comes up to buy the best botanicals at wholesale prices.

Ozumo: With a swanky interior and an accommodating staff, this sushi restaurant has quickly become a SOMA favorite amongst the locals. With a menu that is as beautifully created as it is delicious, everything that comes to the table here is a work of art.
