Houston Press' Description

James Beard Award-winning Austin chef Tyson Cole's ultramodern Japanese import, Uchi, occupies the old building that housed Houston classic Felix Mexican Restaurant in Montrose for half a century — and the young restaurant is already just as popular. You'll have to make reservations for this dinner-only spot if you want to sit in the steely-chic dining room, but walk-ins can usually be accommodated at the surprisingly cozy bar. A spot-on sake list (as well as beer and wine) accompanies a menu of "hot" and "cold" "tastings" along with more traditional Japanese items such as sushi, sashimi and rolls. Happy hour is every weekday and offers some of Uchi's favorites — machi cure with smoked yellowtail, for example, and the skewers of pork belly called bacon sen — for a drastically reduced price.

    Fantastic. I sit at the bar and hang out and ask questions and receive great advice all the time. Not to be missed. Dine on a relative budget or go all out. It's up to you really.

    Uchi feels like that rare combination of a restaurant that's both popular and important. [Eater 38 Member]

    When you're lucky enough to find a seat at the sushi bar... order the 10-course tasting menu. Get insights from the sushi chefs to truly appreciate each course. A foodies delight!
