A new sushi restaurant debuts in Fayetteville on Monday, July 25, from a chef who is no stranger to serving “sushi to the stars” on movie sets via his catering business.
Sensu Sushi Restaurant and Bar becomes the latest restaurant to open at Town Centre at Trilith, a planned community adjacent to Trilith movie studios in the south metro Atlanta city.
Owned by chef Alvin Dayrit, Sensu serves sushi and sushi rolls in the dining room and sushi bar as well as on the small street-side patio out front. A full bar offers wine, beer, sake, and cocktails.
Dayrit began working in Japanese restaurants when he was 19 years old, first learning rice cooking techniques, how to create sushi rolls, and filleting fish at longtime Miami sushi spot Su-shin Japanese Restaurant. For the last 15 years, Dayrit has catered sushi on set for movie and television productions and owned Ginza Japanese Sushi in nearby Peachtree City, which has since closed.
Sensu Sushi Restaurant and Bar joins Honeysuckle Gelato, Barleygarden Kitchen and Craft Bar, Woodstone Bakery and Cafe, and Amici Italian Cafe now open at Town Centre at Trilith. Earlier this year, autonomous grocery store Nourish + Bloom Market also opened at the development. People use self-guiding technology and QR codes on their smart phones to purchase groceries, forgoing the need to check out at a register.
Atlanta-based breakfast restaurant Thumbs Up Diner should open at Trilith this fall, along with a new location of Hero Doughnuts and Buns. A food hall and a restaurant from Mushi Ni chefs Tanya Jimenez and Michael Le called Braise are expected to open in the coming year.
The Fayette County movie studio Town Centre at Trilith is based around currently serves as headquarters for several film productions and TV shows, including for past blockbuster movies like “Black Panther” and “Avengers: Endgame”.
Hundreds of single family homes and apartments, 15 miles of walking trails, new parks, and a 54-acre forest are also in the works for the planned community. Future expansion at Trilith will eventually see the opening of more restaurants and retail, office and studios spaces, a theater, and a K-12 micro-school.
Open Monday - Friday, 11:30 a.m. to 2p.m. and 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.; Saturday, 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
300 Trilith Parkway, Fayetteville.
