Long-anticipated boutique South Congress Hotel has just bowed in Austin and to add to the excitement, celebrity chef Paul Qui (of Uchi fame) is behind one of its eateries, Otoko.
It features an omakase menu where the chef determines the offerings of the day at an intimate, 12-seat sushi bar. The menu includes Tokyo-style sushi and Kyotostyle kaiseki with local fresh ingredients and delivered to the diner in a thoughtful sequence. This will be the third restaurant for the popular Austin chef following Qui and East Side King.
South Congress Hotel, by Austin-based Violet Crown, offers 71 rooms and 12 suites, restaurants, retail and a versatile indoor and outdoor private event space for up to 300 guests.
