Uchiko is the sister restaurant to Tyson Cole’s original Uchi. It matches that restaurant’s dedication to food, wine, and service, but it has a Japanese farmhouse aesthetic with crafted materials and warm finishes to round out a completely updated setting. The chef team at Uchiko has created a brand new selection of composed dishes and sushi, taken from ideas and plates created at Uchi. Uchiko is Uchi rede­fined. Reservations are encouraged and can be booked online up to 1 month in advance for parties of up to 12 guests. Walk-in bar seating is available and is subject to wait times. Patio seating is weather permitting and may be rescheduled in the event of inclement weather. We look forward to serving you, Kanpai!

Discover Central Austin

For a city with the motto “Keep Austin Weird,” it's not surprising that the area is home to an eclectic assortment of dishes. This is a part of the city where you can eat breakfast tacos in the morning, have barbecue from a food truck for lunch and end the day with a meal of pork jowl bibimbap. Have a group? Enjoy a hookah with expertly prepared Mediterranean cuisine or Shwarma seasoned to perfection. When it comes to dessert, central Austin is more than up to the task. From donuts adorned with cereal to fruit-filled kolache, you may be ruined for pastries and sweets from any other city. Naturally, you'll also find an assortment of coffee shops throughout the area, and you'll have the opportunity to try an almost endless variety of coffee, espresso and tea.
