Uchi Dallas announced today that Chef Jeramie Robison will rejoin the Uchi family as Chef de Cuisine replacing Nilton Borges beginning Wednesday, January 6. Robison began working with the Uchi Austin team in 2012, and was named Chef de Cuisine in 2013 before moving to Dallas and becoming Executive Chef at Shinsei in 2015.
Originally from Ruston, Louisiana, Robison graduated from culinary school and began working at the Mansion on Turtle Creek. From there, Robison took over as Executive Chef at the posh Cinq restaurant inside the Colombe D’or Bed-and-Breakfast in Houston. Before joining the Uchi Austin team, he was honored as one of Houston’s Star Chefs in 2012 – an award bestowed to only five chefs from a pool of 75 local restaurants.
“I’ve fallen in love with the city and culinary scene in Dallas and I am beyond thrilled to call Uchi home again,” notes Robison. “It’s an honor to be considered for the position and I can’t wait to be a part of the Uchi family once more.”
“When Jeramie left Uchi Austin, we wished him all the best. Now, we have a reason to reconnect and work together again, and we are excited about the energy and creativity he’ll bring to our kitchen,” comments John Baydale, president of Uchi Restaurants.
