At once elegant and casual, Sensi is a Vegas-style creation that cost approximately $12 million to build, we're told. And with its many highlights and its unique dining experience, it was worth every dollar. This stone and water garden turned gourmet restaurant is a truly spectacular tribute to the elements. Boulders about 12 inches thick that were quarried from Japan have been used in its construction, requiring the installation of reinforced flooring due to their immense weight. Designed by famed Japanese design firm Superpotato, the stones are called Aji stones; quarried from southern Japan, their textures vary from highly polished to extremely rough, representing, according to Superpotato, the "natural form of stone versus the human touch of stone." Of course, stone isn't the only element that rules supreme at Sensi. Water is equally important and immediately noticeable thanks to the restaurant's waterfall-encased signage, which features the Sensi logo—the restaurant's name, written in lowercase script and underlined with an elegant wave—as well as the infinity waterfall inside, which splashes over the short black granite walls around the bar. Combined, all create a sensational and yet soothing atmosphere.

Next to the indoor use of outdoor elements, one of the many highlights at Sensi is its demonstration kitchen, which is organized into many different areas in which many different types of cuisine are prepared. From just about every seat in the main dining room you can view all the action that's going on in the kitchen, including the preparation of your very own meal. Each type of cooking has a separate station; if you only want to see the pizzas prepared, for instance, or bread from the tandoor oven, ask for a specific view when you're making your reservation. This veritable stage of culinary performance is situated in the middle of the dining room and surrounded by glass walls that trap heat inside the kitchen while still allowing diners to enjoy the show. If you really want to get up close and personal, consider sitting at the counter that surrounds the kitchen, from which you can see absolutely everything that's going on. While a layer of green frosted glass coats the windows surrounding the kitchen, stone walls obstruct your view from the waist down. In fact, one of the four walls surrounding the kitchen—the only one without viewing windows—is made entirely of Aji stone.
