It's not a trip to Boston if I don't go to Uni. I love how seasonal their ingredients are and in the five years of eating omakase there, I've never had a full menu that's the same twice. This time, the standouts in the omakase were the tomatoes dish and the foie grad. My advice is to sit below ground at the bar, it's way more casual, with hip hop blaring and while you'll end up paying $160-$170 for the omakase, it's all just so good and relaxing. The experience starts with an add your own hot water hand towel, to finish with a mind blowing dessert. Other flavor standouts include a ricotta yuzu dumpling topped with some chanterelle bathing beauties in a delightful cream sauce, the pickled golden raisins in another dish was also a pleasant delight. The uni powder in another dish blew my mind, but nothing is like their nigiri. The toro was perfection. Highly recommend!!!
Such an inventive menu! Uni is Japanese fusion, that is not afraid to take risks. It's small plate style (tapas), and I'd encourage you to go with a few friends to try a lot. Not every dish here is a hit - often very polarizing to people. I came here with friends, and we all enjoyed very different dishes. My two favorites were the uni spoon and the nonesuch oysters. The uni spoon was rich and creamy - I've never had anything like it. The oyster was a contrast - sweet, salty, with nice acid. Some of my friends enjoyed the duck carnitas, I thought it was ok - the scallion pancake used absorbed too much oil in my opinion. I was glad to see the chicken and waffles off the menu this time though - interesting in theory, but the mix of flavors wasn't right. Feel like going by yourself? Uni has a great Omakase...one of the better ones in Boston. As everything is small plates, watch the price. I think most things are reasonably priced for a nice dinner out, but it can add up quickly if you do not pay attention.
Endearing team presenting such a creative spin on traditional fare which far outplays their overly fair price points...
Everything was super-freakin-duper, though this little gem of Tuna and Foie Gras was EIPC...
