After charming Austin with an impressive display of Sushi and amazing flavors, chef and owner Tyson Cole created his second restaurant, Uchiko, with offerings fresh from farm and sea inspired by Japanese farmhouse cuisine. We love Uchi’s little sister, as it is a perfect alternative for high-end sushi with a great atmosphere. Everyone in Austin just loves their Japanese farmhouse aesthetic, crafted materials and warm finishes, which perfectly round out the dining experience. Uchiko’s menu is a nifty selection of composed dishes and sushi, taken from ideas and recipes originally created at Uchi.
In a town that is all about sustainability and eco-friendly initiatives, Uchiko brings a refreshing perspective of social and environmental awareness. The restaurant only uses seafood products that are sustainable and farmed responsibly. Management also stresses on working with suppliers that focus on sourcing fish products that are traceable. Their mission is to further this vision of sustainability not only with their fish, but throughout their entire menu.
For this Austin foodie, there’s nothing better than interesting menu selections, paired with a side of conscious business savvy.
