Apsara, the new Thai restaurant owned by Chanaka Delanerolle of Teak, has opened in the space of the former Watson Bros. Bistro & Brewery in Blue Ash, and Jessi Singh opened a fourth Indian eatery called Guru India, in Crescent Springs.

Executive chef/owner Travis Maier expects his new tapas restaurant, Seny, to open Oct. 11 in Walnut Hills. Maier recently returned from an apprenticeship with Restaurante Martin Berasategui, a restaurant with a three-star Michelin rating in San Sebastian of Spain. Maier's new restaurant will incorporate many authentic Spanish tapas dishes into his menu (such as Croquettas of chicken, ham and spinach and Gambas al Ajillo, shrimp sautéed in garlic, crushed pepper and olive oil) as well as Spanish-inspired choices. Travis says his whole concept revolves around the restaurant name, which means "common sense" in Catalan, a Spanish dialect spoken in Barcelona and on the eastern coast of Spain. He says the food will be the same high quality you can get at other fine dining venues in town but "it will be common sensical -- nothing too extravagant.
