Dinner in Nara

I am going to be in Nara for one night, during the Tokae Festival when they light up the park and other places with candles. Are there any recommendations for dinner, and maybe lunch too. Are there places outside for dinner where I can enjoy the viewe? Thanks again everyone! I leave for Japan on Saturday!

      Are Maguro and Sushi Ichi still open? Oh boy, I'd climb on a plane in a second for either.

      Maguro is all tuna, and well, you have to ignore the grimy walls and in the summer the bugs, but wow...seriously, wow. Sushi Ichi is just very good, very solid sushi.
