Stuffed with bright blooms and art-inspired décor items, Sprout's downtown store stimulates all five senses. Never mistake a pumpkin for a turnip again by sticking a fork in it with vintage silverware garden markers ($10 each). Indoors, the sensuous fruit and citrus scents of a 7.5-ounce Japanese blossom soy candle ($24) sweet-talk their way into exclusive nostril nightclubs, and bud vases ($6 each) suit single-stem flowers in fitting attire. A fully equipped florist, Sprout also purveys fresh flowers by the stem or in mixed bouquets for weddings, birthdays, and conciliatory presents to angry colonies of bees. Though not included with this deal, Sprout supplies a variety of jewelry and artwork.

When restauranteurs Billy Gene and Janie Smith first teamed up with Chef Dave Waide in 2008, their plan was to open a small seafood and steak place with a specialty in Italian cuisine. But after Billy Gene and Janie moved Bella Vita to its larger, current location in 2012, they also decided to update their menu to be primarily Italian (and transformed the former location into a steak house). Today, Bella Vita serves country Italian favorites, from sausage and peppers to lasagna and spaghetti with meatballs. Seafood and steak entrees can still be found, though, including their signature rib-eye steak, a 10-ounce certified Angus beef rib eye with a mushroom red wine reduction demi-glace.
