We were told when Uchi first opened that there would be a new concept above the restaurant later this year. True to that statement, Uchi announced todaythe name of their sixth restaurant, Top Knot. Chef and team announcements will be made in the next few weeks.
The menu at Top Knot consists of shared small plates that give a playful nod to the restaurant’s downstairs sibling Uchi. The food will bring together flavors from across Asia and farther afield. Top Knot will open initially for dinner and a full bar offering, including beer, wine, and sake on tap and distinctive cocktails. Brunch and lunch will launch in subsequent months. Specific menus will be shared in the next few weeks.
Top Knot will be located uptown on the corner of Maple Avenue and Randall Street at 2817 Maple Avenue and above Uchi.
For those unfamiliar with the term top knot, you may know it by it’s other name, “man bun” the tied off bulb of hair found popular by some young men today.
