When asking a local Austinite about a romantic, classy dinner, Uchi will be on the top of the list.  Omakase means “I’ll leave it to you” in Japanese, which is what the restaurant named the chef’s tasting menu.  There’s no doubt, leaving it to the Uchi masters is easy.  The fresh food and sophisticated presentation is pleasing to the eyes, tastbuds, heart and soul. Chef Tyson Cole has paved the pathway for Austin cuisine, and continues to Keep Austin Eatin’.

TIP:  Open Sun-Thur 5-10 pm and Fri-Sat from 5-11pm. Limited reservations available online.
