The jenga-like walls inside upscale Uchi hint at the whimsical sushi experience at the Houston outpost of Austin's famed Japanese restaurant. The artistic approach to modern Japanese cuisine is centered around fresh fish flown in daily from Japan's Fukuoka and Tsukiji markets alongside inspired dishes like machi cure (smoked baby yellowtail, yucca crisps, marcona almonds, Asian pear, garlic brittle). Peruse their Old and New World wine list or choose from intriguing sakes and beers. Save room for their famed fried milk dessert.
