One of Honolulu's most hyped restaurants, this Chinatown nook has powerhouse parents—local Chris Kajioka of Vintage Cave and London's Anthony Rush of Fera at Claridge's—who met working at New York City's Per Se. The name Senia plays on the Greek word xenia (hospitality). Belly up to its live-edge chef's counter, carved from monkeypod lumber, for a splendid ten-course tasting menu. The $185 feast might include gems like tiny, delicate Kusshi oysters with green apple, tartare made with local venison, and a duck leg wrapped in cabbage. The relaxed, exposed-brick dining room also serves à la carte inspirations such as Kauai shrimp ravioli with sweet corn and jalapeño, alongside mahi Wellington.
