One of Austin’s best restaurants is entering uncharted territory. Uchi will host its first-ever brunch on December 11. The reason? To benefit the Central Texas Food Bank. The brunch will be omakase style (chef’s choice) and include sake-cured masu, Hausbar (Farms) herb omelet, duck confit with grits, fried whole seabass and more. The cost for the event is $100 for two guests, not including tax, gratuity or beverages. The brunch runs from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Mandatory reservations can be made by calling 512-916-4808

“We are always looking for new ways to support the community and we thought what better way to give back than by trying something new,” Uchi chef de cuisine Michael Castillo said. “We are not a ‘brunch’ restaurant so spreading our wings a bit and doing brunch Uchi style is really fun for us,” Castillo adds.
