The name Sen translates to “fresh” in Japanese, which harkens to the shop's sashimi-grade seafood (meaning it can be eaten raw) and its oysters — some of which can be enjoyed at the connected oyster bar.

Sen is being brought to the market by chef Hideki Harada and will act as a branch of the Japanese restaurant Kiki College Hill, which he owns with his wife Yuko.

Findlay Market says Harada “enjoys bringing in his own twist of flavors inspired by his life growing up as an American, and his mission is to serve what he likes to eat.”

Celebrate the opening of Sen at 2 p.m. on June 30. Harada and Findlay Market marketing director John Bird with briefly speak followed by a ribbon-cutting and $1 off oysters until 6 p.m.

Findlay Market is located at 1801 Race St., Over-the-Rhine. Find more information at findlaymarket.org.
