District Stores and Restaurants Now Open

The frequently-shifting shelter-in-place orders make it hard for businesses themselves to know when and how they will be operating from day to day.  If current trends continue, we look to see new openings and increased activity throughout the area.

The down side of this is that it is hard for us to do the level of checking required to maintain this page.   If you find errors, or know of changes, please notify web@sflcd.org .

Also, please write to info@sflcd.org if there anything the Cultural District can do to help your business cope with current conditions.

In addition to this page, you may also wish to consult the SOMA West Community Benefit District‘s comprehensive list of dining options in the entire SOMA West area, here.

Whether for takeout or delivery, please do patronize these businesses as often as possible, and help our neighborhood to survive these challenging times.  Thanks!
