A new Vietnamese and French-inspired restaurant is now open in Carytown. Sen Organic Small Plate opened its doors this week at 2901 W. Cary Street. The restaurant took over the former Dixie Donuts shop that shut down in February.
Owner Hang Pham is no stranger to Carytown. She owns Perception Organic Spa on the other side of W. Cary Street.
Expect to find Vietnamese and French cuisine in the 1,345-square-foot space, but nothing too heavy–most of the menu consists of small plates designed for sharing and sampling.
“Sen” translates roughly to “lotus flower” in Vietnamese, as the restaurant explains on its Facebook page. “The meaning of the lotus flower is one that resonates with us: ‘Its roots are in muddy water, but the lotus flower rises above the mud to bloom, clean and fragrant.’ The universality of this definition is one that inspired Sen to use only the freshest and pure ingredients–organically grown.”
Sen Organic Small Plate is open for lunch and dinner service every day but Tuesday.
