My mother and I are east-coasters -- DC and NY -- with experience in good eating. We're staying at in SoMa for the week-end but need some recommendations for lunch/brunch dinner. Going to the Farmer's Market this morning for bfast, but are walking thru SoMa towards Union Square and want a great ladies lunch spot -- sunny and open, nice decor -- a place to have a fantastic 12 salad. Someone recommended Beldon Alley, but that looks a little crowded. If it's warm enough and we sit outside is one rest. better than the other?
And for dinner, we had sushi at Ozumo last night -- near our hotel and very good. We're hoping for something similarly in the neighborhood for dinner tonite -- but more local seafood, maybe a more casual, less pricey version of Aqua. Don't know how seafood oriented, but Boulevard and Salt were both recommended by a discerning friend...Thanks, Chris
