My husband and I are big Top Chef fans and we finally made it to Uchiko in Austin (former winner Paul Qui worked at Uchiko). While Paul has moved on to new projects, we had a wonderful meal and night out at Uchiko. Our waiter was very helpful in guiding us through the menu and helping to order the dishes into the most delicious progression. Some of our favorite things included a tuna-goat cheese-fuji apple cold dish, tempura eggplant, and the P-38 roll will yellow tail. My favorite thing was the madai sushi - a bite of sea bream with meyer lemon and olive oil -- it was clean and the citrus was incredible. I liked it so much I ordered another piece. Can't wait to go back. It's a hip place filled with beautiful people and what seemed like a million waitstaff filling glasses, removing plates, and serving dishes. We were glad to have a reservation -- the crowds were piling up in the bar and outdoor patio.
