Hai Hospitality, the restaurant group based in Austin, has announced the location of its eighth restaurant, will be located in Miami, FL. Owner and Executive Chef Tyson Cole’s Uchi Miami will mark the second restaurant outside of Texas and first in the state of Florida. Their current restaurants include Uchi Austin, Uchi Dallas, Uchi Houston, Uchi Denver, as well as Uchiko in Austin, Uchiba in Dallas, and Loro.
Uchi Mami will meld the best offerings of James Beard award-winning Cole’s original Uchi and Uchiko. The offerings of Uchi, which translated from Japanese means “house,” will include hot and cool tastings, makimono, yakimono, tempura and, of course, sushi and sashimi. Most dishes such as machi cure – smoked yellowtail served with yucca chips and marcona almonds – and kinoko nabe – mushrooms, rice and egg yolk cooked together tableside in a ceramic bowl – are designed to be shared by the table.
