This Austin import has delicious sushi, an intensely varied sake list, and creative renditions of lamb, venison and duck confit doused with Japanese sensuality. The 1,000-degree hot rock lets you sear your own kobe beef, fish, scallop and shiitake caps right at your table (10 minutes worth of searing power, so eat fast or order another rock). Sometimes things work, sometimes they don't. And if you can get used to the numbing noise and the bank lobby feel, Kenichi is a great place to regularly visit and leer at the kitchen experiments - among other things.
