As the red hot Texas summer finally begins to show mercy, it is that time of year again, Austin Restaurant Week, when many of Austin’s finest do a prix fixe menu ($10 – $15 for lunch and $25 – $35 for dinner) with a portion going to the Sustainable Food Center. This is your chance to try places you have never been and places you have wished you could all in the name of charity. This year the “week” runs Sunday through Wednesday for two weeks in a row September 19-22 and 26-29. My birthday happens to fall towards the end on the 28th, so I immediately put in for reservations at the hottest new restaurant in Austin Uchiko, the beautiful little sister to Tyson Cole’s Uchi, where I had my best and most expensive meal ever. Uchi has limited seating and is perpetually full, so it has never participated in restaurant week. The much bigger Uchiko has room for the hordes that are sure to descend. Here is the menu for restaurant week.
