Hollywood in Austin
2 Hollywood celebrities dined at one of Austin’s best restaurants this week
If there are two things we already know about Austin, it’s that celebrities love it here, and Uchi is always the right choice. While most Austinites were cozying up at home this week, Alison Brie and husband Dave Franco were dining at the award-winning restaurant.
Uchi posted the news on Instagram, sharing an abbreviated clip from the pair’s morning interview with Fox 7 Austin.
“We went to Uchi last night,” Franco says. “One of the best meals we’ve had in a very long time.”
Responding to the shoutout, Uchi wrote: "What a great surprise to wake up to! (And no, we're not taking about this winter weather in Texas.) Thank you Dave Franco and @AlisonBrie for their kind words on @Fox7Austin this morning. Congrats on your new movie, we hope to see you again soon!"
But before you worry about more California transplants, take comfort in the fact that — at least for now — the celebrity duo were in town for a screening of their upcoming film Somebody I Used to Know. Written by Brie and Franco, directed by Franco, and starring Brie, the romantic comedy follows workaholic Ally (Brie) as she reunites with her ex-boyfriend Sean (Jay Ellis), which makes her question her life choices.
In another shout out to Austin icons, Brie shared a picture of her and Franco with Alamo Drafthouse founder Tim League on her Instagram stories, thanking both the theater and its founder for hosting the screening.
Somebody I Used to Know will premier on Amazon Prime on February 10.
