Best Sushi Restaurants: Uchi

Paul Bardagjy

Uchi, Austin, TX

Austin has a reputation for being a bit of a wild card, but who knew it was home to one of the most innovative sushi restaurants? Chef Tyson Cole quickly made a name for himself after opening Uchi, where he combines local ingredients with fish flown in daily from Tokyo. A prime example is the machi cure, which is a play of baby yellowtail, yucca chips, Asian pears, Marcona almonds, and garlic brittle. For a rustic counterpoint to contemporary Uchi, try Cole’s other Austin sushi spot, Uchiko.
