New, 4 comments

Uchi group's continued plans to deliciously take over the world continue with a new "more casual" concept at a lower price point, director of culinary operations Philip Speer tells CultureMap Austin. Details are practically non-existent:

There's no name, no confirmed location and no details on the menu or fare, but director of culinary operations Philip Speer describes the forthcoming Austin restaurant as "something more casual" with a lower price point.

"It's something Austin's never seen," Speer says, "kinda different and cool."

What's confirmed so far is that Uchi's Jack Yoss, a culinary protege of Wolfgang Puck who also has an executive chef stint at the W Hotel in Los Angeles' NineThirty, will run the kitchen.
