One of Honolulu’s most hyped restaurants, this Chinatown nook has powerhouse parents: Local boy Chris Kajioka of Vintage Cave and U.K.-born Anthony Rush of Fera at Claridge’s 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 multicourse tasting menu. The $185 feast might include gems like delicate Kusshi oysters with green apple, a regional venison tartare, or a duck leg wrapped in cabbage. The relaxed exposed-brick dining room also serves à la carte inspirations like mahi-mahi Wellington or Kauai shrimp ravioli with sweet corn and jalapeño.
