Japanese Farmhouse Fare

Tyson Cole’s acclaimed Uchi and the subsequent (and much larger) Uchiko serve some of the best Japanese fare in the United States. From sushi bar staples such as yellowtail and salmon belly to unconventional options (72-hour Wagyu short rib sushi), it’s obvious that the kitchen loves experimenting, but not at the expense of diners. Cole knows his craft so well that even a slice of raw madai comes with 12 components perfectly chosen to make that one bite memorable. The much talked about Jar Jar Duck (pictured above) is a must; once the lid opens and you smell that magical rosemary smoke, you’ll know immediately what I mean. For the best seat in the house, sit at the sushi bar and watch the chefs in action.
