Chronicle Restaurant Poll
The results of the Austin Chronicle’s 2004 Restaurant Poll
are in. The biggest surprise seems to be that there is more competition between Austin’s sushi restaurants than among Italian restaurants. The bad news is that Uchi ranked at the top of both the readers and critics polls. We had dinner there Tuesday evening. It was exceedingly mediocre and expensive. It was also a bad sign that none of the sushi chefs was over the age of 30. Uchi clearly appeals to the trendy folks who favor Kenichi. I am more partial to the traditional style and quality at Mushashino.
