Ahhh, how I love Uchi. I took my husband for his birthday. So we got there at 5:00p when it opened. That is the key, not only do you get a chance to sit at the sushi bar but you get there for the sake social hour. For the budget minded this is definitely the way to try Uchi. Great deals on phenomenal food. They tell you not to use soy sauce, I was skeptical but they were right. The food is so perfectly balanced you would ruin it with soy.
My husband loved the jar jar duck and the smoked escolar was incredible. Do not miss the brussel sprouts even if you don't normally like them. We have recreated them for the kids at home and they can't get enough!! They also gave us a complimentary Wagu beef dish and wow....it was great!
Uchi, you have won our hearts!
