Austin: Uchiko

Uchi is hands down the best Japanese food and sushi in Austin. Every time I've been - one very memorable time with my friend Martha - the wait is insane, but completely worth it. I, along with the rest of the city, have been patiently waiting since last year for chef Tyson Cole to finally open Uchi's sister restaurant, Uchiko. Here's a peek at the Michael Hsu-designed space - the library is below - at the new spot on North Lamar.
I've interviewed both architect Michael Hsu and Tyson Cole for Texas Monthly. If you want to take a peek at Cole's kitchen cabinet and what he uses in his home kitchen - think $5,000 knives - or see the tie flying obsession that Hsu has in the garage of his mid-century home, click here or here.
