Austin’s sushi game is very strong, despite being a landlocked city. Look no further than award-winning chef Tyson Cole and his nationally recognized sibling spots Uchi and Uchiko. The Japanese specialty is done right in town, with sushi, sashimi, nigiri, chirashi bowls, and even rolls aplenty.
Austin’s best sushi restaurants range from casual to exclusive. Top spots include Musashino, which served as the training grounds for many of the city’s top chefs, strong offerings from trailer-turned-restaurant Kome, fun omakase spots like Otoko and Tsuke Domae, and many more.
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. Follow the business’s rules, be sure to wear a mask, and tip well.
