The stylish Shinsei has gotten more so thanks to the remodeled upstairs lounge, renamed the Sakaya Room. The colors are sexier, and there's a little more sense of drama for the prideful of Preston Hollow and the Park Cities to drink in.
The restaurant is touting new izakaya service in the lounge, which is Japanese talk for small plates and cocktails enjoyed in a relaxed setting. A changing assortment of free nibbles are offered from 5 to 6:30 p.m. weekdays. Asian-inspired cocktails and Shinsei's substantial sake list are available to accompany them.
