We've been looking forward to Sen, the first NYC outpost of the eighteen-year-old Sag Harbor sushi restaurant with the same name, since last year. Jeff Resnick and Tora Matsuoka have now opened Sen on West 21st Street in Flatiron. The menu is a collaboration between executive chef Bryan Emperor and executive sushi chef Hiro Sawatari, who sliced things up last at Niko, and before that, at Sushi Yasuda. The restaurant has a voluminous wine list, sake by the glass and bottle, and cocktails to match the menu of raw and cooked dishes that span everything from from Japanese fried chicken wings to sustainable Bluefin tuna. Check out the whole deal, gills to flipper fins, straight ahead.
