Uchi’s new-to-Houston little sister resides in ritzy Post Oak Place, and boy is she fun! Picture cool lighting, an ample patio, and a long sushi counter manned by a bevy of skillful chefs. First up: the Tiger Cry roll, bundles of crispy lettuce encircling slices of charred Wagyu, fire-roasted red pepper, and cucumber, crowned with pickled fennel. Next, the DIY Ko Rock (above), where we seared thin slices of raw beef on blazing hot stone. As expected, the fish, straight from Tokyo’s Toyosu Market, is impeccable. Treat yourself to beauties such as golden eye snapper, ocean trout, uni, and ikura, each with garnishes that range from crystalline ginger and tiny pepper slices to frizzled fruit zest.
