It's been said that perfection is the enemy of progress, but at Uchi both excellence and innovation are part of the restaurant's very essence. This rustic Austin import has been a Houston sensation since day one, with a packed house virtually every weekday and weekend. Order from the ever-changing menu, which mixes local and seasonal specials with Uchi favorites like the jar jar duck, or give the astonishingly helpful wait staff an idea of what you like and how much you want to spend (forget a small number) and let them take the lead. Even better: Nab a seat at the sushi counter and settle in for a 10-course omakase.
There are a limited number of walk-in tables available each night, so prepare to line up well before 5 p.m. to get in.
