Uchiko, child of Uchi, is the offspring of James Beard Award‑winning Chef Tyson Cole's original non‑traditional Japanese concept. While the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, Uchiko takes a fiery turn bringing smoke and char alongside the fresh and clean flavors that define Uchi.

Michael Hsu Office of Architecture integrated organic elements and a modern aesthetic into our thoughtfully designed space.

The wood throughout Uchiko has a wide range of variety and character. The Back PDR wall is reclaimed Pecan salvaged from downed trees from Shady Grove. The banquettes feature spalted Pecan from old‑growth trees that were salvaged as well. The sushi bar features Pecan from a tree that was 168 years old, salvaged off of the Colorado river.
