One night in Tokyo - need fantastic restaurant serving local food

downtowntorontofoodlover Jan 13, 2010 07:15 AM

My friend and I are spending one night in Tokyo en route from SE Asia back to Canada, staying at the Peninsula Hotel. I've been to Tokyo a few times before and have eaten at restaurants serving food from various surrounding prefectures. I am looking for a fantastic meal at a restaurant serving local food but not preferably not sushi and not in a hotel restaurant (even though they can be fabulous). A kaiseki experience would be great too. I'm not too price sensitive but I'm not at the same time looking to spend a fortune on the meal just to do so. Any ideas? Any views on the three star michelin restaurants? Thanks for your help.
