When we came up with the concept of Shinsei we wanted a place that reflected our lifestyles: sometimes we went out to dinner with our kids and sometimes with our friends and husbands. We wanted to create a place where a night out with the kids didn’t mean food adults had to suffer through or a night out with the parents didn’t mean a stuffy place where kids had to wear a scratchy clip-on tie. Shinsei is just that: a neighborhood gathering place with date night appeal.

But not so unexpected that you won’t be able to decipher the menu or recognize your favorite dish. Our signature poppers, for instance, are a sophisticated mix of late night bar food and sumptuous finger food with a distinctly Asian flair.

Great Sushi / Sashimi restaurant. The menu selections are divergent and plentiful, and for those who are carb-intolerant they make riceless rolls for about any roll on the menu (Riceless Rainbow Roll was excellent). Sashimi is generally $16 for five pieces (I prefer Salmon which was great), TORO is market price. Wine by the bottle is half off on Monday hence our go-to night. Service (both from the wait staff to the chefs) was top-notch - no complaints whatsoever. Price is around $$$, for myself low priced ($-$$) Sashimi is a bit worrisome so I prefer more upscale. Only recommendation to Shinsei: refrigerate your Sushi/Sashimi plates.

Great cocktails and food plus excellent wine list are essential and fully accomplished at Shinsei. The extra secret sauce is that the service is always tailored to what each diner is looking for. Our group was enjoying relaxed drinks and sushi and grazing while chatting to catch up, and the family at the table next to us was a little more mission-oriented for dinner while another nearby table had a couple on a date. The servers seemed to instinctively know how to pace the orders, the deliveries, etc so each table had exactly what they needed. As always, a terrific evening at Shinsei!

Wonderful experience with fantastic food. I ordered the rock shrimp and curry sashimi for apps (both outstanding) and the Dragon lady roll - one of my all time favorite rolls. The crispy rice is also a must. We had great service and were seated right away when we showed up for our reservation!

While the service and atmosphere is always fantastic at Shinsei, I'm starting to notice a pattern at our favorite restaurants since COVID and that is the food quality has recognizably diminished. My hypothesis is that because the restaurants have lost so much money over the past year, they are now trying to make up their profits by buying lower quality foods. But, they should ALL know that the consumer is much more discriminating than they think. If the food quality doesn't improve significantly, back up to pre-Covid levels, many of these restaurants including Shinsei will be out of business quickly.

What an absolutely gem. This was our first night out since the pandemic started and it was everything we could have hoped for. The food was incredible (definitely try the pressed sushi) and the service friendly while also keeping distant. The Demesy may be the best bite of food I’ve ever had- perfection.
