Ever dreamed of omakase on your couch? As restaurants have pivoted to carry-out dishes to avoid the spread of COVID-19, many of Austin’s most popular sushi spots have followed suit with creative to-go and delivery menus.
For fancy sushi, many of Austin’s hotspots — Kyoten Sushiko (which reopened last year with a new chef), critically acclaimed Uroko, and James Beard Award winner Tyson Cole’s sushi restaurants Uchi and Uchiko — are still serving. There are also more casual options, like Ichiban on Burnet Road and perennial favorite Komé.
As with all businesses right now, be sure to call ahead to make sure each restaurant is still open or if there are updates on current offerings and service models, as things are changing constantly. Be sure to wear a mask, tip well, and, if you’re ordering delivery, try to order directly from the restaurant themselves.
