Welcome to UNI.

UNI is a lively, contemporary izakaya located in The Eliot Hotel on Commonwealth Avenue, helmed by Chef-Partners Ken Oringer and Tony Messina, 2018 James Beard Award nominated Outstanding Restaurateur and Best Chef: Northeast, respectively. 

The menu highlights global street food-inspired small plates, innovative makimono, nigiri and sashimi, alongside craft cocktails and a wide-ranging sake program. During Late Night service on Friday and Saturday nights, UNI presents a menu featuring the restaurant’s cult-followed ramen, as well as a selection of sushi and small plates.

In November 2018, Boston Magazine named UNI number one on their list of Boston's Top 50 Restaurants.
