Sen Sakana is Peruvian-Japanese, a fusion style that’s actually very popular in Peru. This place got written up when it opened as being a “$7 milion restaurant,” and we frankly don’t know what that means. Presumably it means they spent $7 million on the renovations, but if that’s the case, it seems unfortunate that they lined the whole place with sad office carpet. As for the food, a big portion of the menu is dedicated to sushi with Peruvian toppings (there’s a “ceviche” roll, for example) as well as skewers, ceviches and tiraditos, and a big mix of other stuff. The food is fine, and it might be okay for a business lunch, but you most certainly don’t need to spend your money here. Definitely not $7 million worth.

The best way for us to give you the lowdown on this place is to explain that it's really two different experiences: the bar, and the dining room. One is a three course, prixe fixe fine dining experience, the other sleek, more relaxed, often features some Action at the Bar. If you're going, go big and eat in the dining room.
