Welcome to The Lowdown, where we tell readers what they can expect from the latest restaurant openings in Houston. Today, we’re discussing Uchiko, the Hai Hospitality Austin concept that’s unveiling its Houston location on May 23. We answer all your questions.
Is Uchiko that Austin restaurant everyone says is so fabulous? Yes, the wait is over. After more than a decade of hearing about the popular Uchiko in Austin, Houstonians can experience it for themselves without making the 150-mile trek up U.S. 290. Hai Hospitality (Uchi, Uchiko and Loro) chose Houston’s Post Oak Place, next to the posh new Zadok Jewelers boutique, as the home for the restaurant’s second Texas outpost. It officially opens for dinner service beginning today.
