Town Centre at Trilith in Fayetteville (formerly Pinewood Forest), a planned community adjacent to Trilith movie studios, will soon include Sensu Sushi Restaurant and Bar among its dining ranks. Owner chef Alvin Dayrit plans to open the restaurant this winter.
Once open, Sensu Sushi will feature a sushi bar, a full bar, and chef-curated sushi meals served in the dining room and on the patio.
Dayrit has worked in Japanese restaurants for most of his career, which began when he was 19 years old at Su-shin Japanese Restaurant in Miami. There he learned Japanese rice-cooking techniques, how to create sushi rolls, and filleting fish. The chef has spent the last 15 years catering sushi on set for movie and television productions. Dayrit also owned Ginza Japanese Sushi in Peachtree City, which has since closed.
Eater reached out to representatives for Dayrit for more information on Sensu Sushi.
Sensu Sushi joins Honeysuckle Gelato, Barleygarden Kitchen and Craft Bar, Hop City Craft Beer and Wine, and Amici Italian Cafe now open at Town Centre. A food hall, Woodstone Bakery and Cafe, and restaurant Braise, owned by Mushi Ni chefs Tanya Jimenez and Michael Le, are all slated to open over the coming months at Town Centre.
A second location of breakfast spot Pancake Social, owned by Atlanta chef Anne Quatrano, who Jimenez previously worked for at Bacchanalia, was to open at the development. However, the restaurant is no longer listed on the Trilith community website.
The Fayette County movie studio the residential community is based around currently serves as headquarters for several film productions and TV shows, including for past blockbusters like “Black Panther” and “Avengers: Endgame”.
Hundreds of single family homes and apartment lofts, a hotel, along with 15 miles of trails, a 54-acre forest, and several parks, are eventually planned for the community. A future expansion for Town Centre calls for more restaurants, retail, offices, and TV and movie studios to be built, as well as a theater and K-12 micro-school.
