Fodor's Review

You've heard the term "extreme sports"? Uchi is "extreme sushi." Respectful of traditional sushi and sashimi methods—but not limited by them—this standout sushi bar (a consistent critical and popular favorite) starts with super-fresh ingredients. After that, anything goes, including touches of the South or south-of-the-border: yellowtail with ponzu sauce and sliced chilies, tempura-style fried green tomatoes, or seared monkfish cheeks with Vietnamese caramel, Belgian

endive, roasted red grapes, and cilantro; unusual salsas enliven most any dish. You can make a tapas-style meal from the cold and hot "tastings" menu. If you sit at the sushi bar you can watch the enthusiastic kitchen staff at work. Attentive, knowledgeable service seals the deal.
