Crispy Fried Shrimp at Sensi

Appealing to all your senses, Sensi has four kitchens that feature four main cuisines—Italian, Asian, American grill and seafood. This dish is a classic: The shrimp are fried and made crispy with a rice-flake crust, then they are dressed in calamansi mayonnaise, served in little individual plates and garnished with Buddha’s Hand Citron. $20, in Bellagio, 693-7223.

The Eastern Front

By Max Jacobson

The stretch of Eastern Avenue that runs from Interstate 215 to Anthem may be the most diverse “restaurant row” in the Valley. As soon as you exit the freeway you see an In-N-Out Burger and a Coco’s, and continuing south, you get to Richmar Plaza, which features Grimaldi’s, where you can enjoy coal-fired pizzas and good beer on the patio, and one of the city’s best coffeehouses, Espresso Culture & Cuisine. People often make the trip across the Valley just for those two hot spots.
