What is best replacement for RYUGIN?

Hello all! I will be in Tokyo in January and was set on going to RYUGIN for dinner, but it will be closed when I will be there. Where is the best place to get a similar experience? I am considering Kanda, Ishikaya and Esaki. Thanks so much!

  1. If by "Ishikaya" you mean "Ishikawa", then of those three, that is the one I would recommend. I enjoyed Kanda, but Ishikawa was better. I have not been to Esaki, but it is Uncle Yabai's local place he has been to many times, and he assures me that ishikawa is better.
