Sushi. Almost unnoticeable from the outside, Sushi Groove is a hip, industrial hideaway across from Slim's in SOMA's Folsom club corridor. With a live DJ nightly and signature sake cocktails, locals flock to Sushi Groove South for excellent, inventive sushi and a bustling, in-the-know atmosphere.
Martel and Nabiel's latest venture, a sister hot spot to Hyde Street's infamous Sushigroove, has brightened up SOMA, giving even the most crowd-shy diners a reason to wade through the nightlife jungle of 11th and Folsom. This sleek, warm space is most often home to casual swarms of e-society types making eyes at one another over their cold unfiltered lemon sake cocktails. You won't need your beer goggles here -- everyone is attractive, and so is the inventive cuisine.
