If Uchi were a rock band, who do you think they would be? Comment and let us know your thoughts!
Last weekend in Austin was a busy one. Rain or Shine, the Keeper Collection Team grooved to the tunes of DMB, Kings of Leon, and Pearl Jam despite the mud and the madness along with 150,000 fans. Come ACL weekend, Austinites are so excited to welcome fans around the world to our favorite city. From Louisiana, our good friend and Martin Wine Cellar Retailer, Ian McCaffery, joined us for two world class acts – ACL Fest and one of Austin’s best culinary venues, Uchi! (Great food and good music…how bad can that be?) If you’re a fan of Austin City Limits, we know you’ve heard the buzz about the Rock Star food creations from Uchi. Uchi uses the freshest possible ingredients and the fish menu board changes daily. On this particular night we were enticed by a myriad of fresh fish options.
To celebrate our dinner with Ian at Uchi, appropriate world-class wine pairings had to be coordinated.
After a long weekend of ACL music, it was such a treat to relax at Uchi and put ourselves in the hands of Uchi’s talented Chefs to feed us whatever they thought was best.
We started our dinner with an amuse bouche – the play on sunchokes in this dish was like revving the engine at the beginning of a race – we knew we had quite the ride ahead of us.
