It's almost here: Loro Asian Smokehouse, the hot Austin-based restaurant from James Beard winning chefs Tyson Cole and Aaron Franklin, opens its long-awaited Houston outpost soon. To celebrate, parent co Hai Hospitality is hosting a pair of omakase dinners at sister restaurant Uchi on Oct. 17 and 18.


Both omakase dinners will include six flavorful courses crafted by Uchi chef de cuisine Shaun King, plus a handful of meats and sides off the Loro menu — sign us up for the oak-grilled quail with gochujang glaze, please — that will be shared among the table.

The dinner on Oct. 17 will be ticketed and limited to just 20 guests, priced at $250 for two people and including pairings from Saint Arnold Brewing. Tickets go on sale at 10am today via Resy; the link will be shared on Uchi's Instagram.

The one on the following day is open to the public ($175 for two people; pairings may be added a la carte). Reservations may be made over the phone: 713.522.4808.

Helmed by Houston-reared chef Marcos Leal, the H-Town location of Loro is slated to open in a Michael Hsu-designed building at 1001 W. 11th Street later this fall.

Gerard O’Brien, President/CEO & Founder, and Sumi Patel, Vice President

HOW DID YOU get where you are today? The EMS industry, quite literally, never stops. Our staff and units are called to serve our community every hour of every day; there are no weekends, holidays, or “days off.” Obviously, the demands of EMS are not for the faint of heart, and we have established a culture of service and accountability that is different than nearly every other organization. Our leadership team sets this culture by exhibiting their passion for this industry daily. Their tireless dedication makes a better experience for our staff when they come to work and for our patients and clients when they call on us to transport their loved ones.
