The Top 100 Dallas Restaurants, No. 33: The Austin import, which also has locations in Houston and Denver, is almost daunting in its reputation for rigorous high-end Japanese cooking. It’s also famously intimidating to the wallet. But Uchi’s excellent service keeps the experience grounded, and its sushi bar does phenomenal work. Although the “hot tastings,” a fancy term for plates of food that are served warm, sometimes suffer from clashing or oddly balanced flavors, anything raw is bound to be good, especially the ultra-fresh seafood on the day’s specials.

Top pick: The only thing better than the ultra-traditional sashimi and more eclectic “cold tasting” seafood items is the sashimi made from gyutoro (beef shortrib).

The downside: Some of the cooked dishes don’t excite as much as the raw, and every once in a while, we’ve had a real head-scratcher.

Fun fact: You can order many of Uchi’s dishes at the more casual bar upstairs, Uchiba.
