Uchi restaurants across Texas auctioning private dinners for Hurricane Harvey relief

Uchi restaurants across Texas are holding auctions to raise money for the Greater Houston Community Foundation, which is helping with Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. People have the opportunity to bid on a 10-course, beverage-paired meals for 12 at Uchi Houston and Dallas and Uchiko in Austin. All of the dinners will be hosted by Uchi founding chef Tyson Cole, who will join chefs from his team at each restaurant throughout the month to prepare the dinners.

Cole will be joined for the November 6 meal in Dallas by chef de cuisine Alex Astranti, November 13 at Uchiko by concept chef Kaz Edwards and on November 20 by Uchi Houston chef de Cuisine Lance Gillum. Bidding starts at $4,000 and is currently taking place on Hai Hospitality’s website.
