Dining Guide

Uchi

There’s no shortage of inventive flavors and surprises at this modern sushi shrine. Distinctive rolls and atypical dipping sauces (sans soy and wasabi) are a great place to start. We relished our tempura shrimp and another favorite, the sake namida, with salmon and avocado and nuoc mam. Portions are small but exquisite, like the delicious shiro tora with salmon and coconut and the seasonal akami te, composed of tuna and compressed watermelon. For a rich hot dish, try the taraba kanpyo: butter-poached lump crab with squash and ponzu. Make reservations in advance for a table, or visit during Sake Social Hour to save some cash.
