In addition to its stellar selection of fresh- and cooked-fish offerings, Uchi is a prime location for sharing the special experience of an omakase tasting menu (market price). It’s also got this enchanting, polished look with unique design moments happening every which way. Feel the glow beneath its signature wall, whose carefully placed crystal bricks filter in natural light during the day and create a magical effect throughout the entirety of the space.
We didn’t think we needed yet another Texas transplant when Austin-based chef Tyson Cole opened Uchi in RiNo in 2018. But alas, the creative spins on traditional Japanese fare are just too good not to love. From the salmon with fried kale, pear, yuzu dashi, and blueberry, to the zesty kampachi crudo with pomelo, Korean chile, and grapefruit zu, the plates flying out of Uchi’s kitchen and raw bar are top-notch and not to be missed. If you want to sample Uchi’s full range, spring for a six or 10 course tasting menu.
