Favorite Fancy Japanese in Tokyo
Hello. I'm living/working in Tokyo for the summer and looking for a celebration place that serves amazing Japanese food. Among others, I've looked at:
Okabe (from the Times article), Kadowaki, Ishikawa, Kikuyoshi and other highly rated places.
I guess Tokyo Chowhound is not very active...in most of the major cities the hounds would take that bait in 5 minutes. Come on! A chance to recommend your favorite expensive place!
I think one of the reasons no one is biting is because it's such a wide playing field. I mean, you can drop 30,000 on sushi in almost any non-kaiten sushi joint in the city. It's not difficult to find expensive food in Tokyo!
That said, I worked in Ginza until recently, and a few of the places I appreciated in that part of the city were Kamakura restaurant (http://www.rincrew.co.jp/ginza/intro....), Sakura Ginza (http://r.gnavi.co.jp/fl/en/g087414/in...), and Takenori Hyaku-Monogatari
Hope those links work!
If they aren't expensive enough for you, I'd check with the hotel concierge. She or he will likely send you to Kyubei.
Good luck finding a pricey meal in Tokyo!
