Rated as one of the top restaurants in Texas, Uchi is a very romantic restaurant with dimly lit lanterns. If you want some privacy, then the sushi bar is for you. For an appetizer, try the Yokai Berry, Sakana Carpaccio and Machi Cure. Make sure you leave some room for desserts, the creme caramel, gelato and panna cotta are delectable. As for the selection of sakes, it is wise to come in for the daily Sake Social to sample small bites and sakes that pair perfectly.
A brainchild of acclaimed chef, Tyson Cole, Uchiko is his second establishment in Austin, which opened its doors following the success of Uchi. The menu features delicious innovations brought into traditional Japanese cuisine; Yokai Berry, Koviche, Dewbee Chicken and tuna sashimi with goat cheese are a few to be named. While attempts are made to offer guests something new, the ingredients remain authentic, which also includes sourcing fish all the way from Tokyo. An interesting selection of desserts like Fried Milk, Tobacco Cream and Olive Gelato provide the perfect finish to your meal.
