The opening of Austin-born Uchi by James Beard Award-winning chef Tyson Cole of Hai Hospitality has been the talk of the town for quite some time.

Uchi’s name translates to “home” in Japanese and shows its warm and familiar atmosphere. The entire space is designed in such a way that guests feel welcome and comfortable in a hidden space. It is complemented by long window curtains, subdued lighting and a neutral color palette with cream-colored Sherpa banquets and warm walnut paneling. However, Uchi respects his artistic neighborhood by decorating the space with colorful wall coverings and intricate art installations that achieve the art of refined simplicity.

Similar to the interior design, the food is pure and fresh, but incredibly balanced and innovative, with a colorful selection of creative dishes that leave an impression. Menu highlights include everything from multi-course omakase tastings that highlight the freshest and most delicate selection of fish, to warm, standout items like ham and eggs (crispy pork katsu, pickled cucumber, fried egg miso) or gyutoro to melt in the mouth (72) -hour short rib). The menu is complemented by a carefully curated selection of cocktails featuring Japanese spirits with a tropical twist, including favorites like Shiro Ryu or Shiso Swizzle. One thing is for sure – the menu won’t disappoint and has something for everyone, whether you are a meat, fish, or vegetable lover – or all of the above.

We can’t wait to serve our Miami guests. “252 NW 25th St., Miami, @uchi_miami
