Uchi | Austin

James Beard award winning chef Tyson Cole's Uchi kicked things off on our first night in Austin. We enjoyed stellar sake, elegant sashimi, early bird makimono specials and wildly creative hot and cold tasting dishes. With seafood flown in daily from the Tsukiji market in Tokyo and ingredients sourced from local farmers, this contemporary Japanese restaurant is sure to please the most discerning of sushi lovers.
