Sensi takes the view that all five senses are needed to truly appreciate a meal. From presentation to taste to olfactory attack, Sensi doesn’t apologize for the way they approach cuisine. It takes traditional dishes and adds a gastronomic twist, like a traditional homemade gnocchi in a gorgonzola, green apple rocket and red wine sauce. What’s more, the edgy, art-deco setting makes the ambiance perfect for a multi-course meal that has conflicting yet somehow perfectly aligned flavors.
