Suggestions for celebration dinner in Tokyo

I plan on running the Tokyo marathon in Feb and would like to have a nice celebratory meal that evening. It's a Sunday. My budget tops out at $300 for two people. I'm open to most kind of food except for French. (yes, I like French but don't want it for this particular meal). It would be nice it's something uniquely Japanese, like the food, the presentation or the decor...etc.

Or am I kidding myself and I'll be too tired to even enjoy it? Maybe I should grab a bowl of ramen somewhere and have a beer instead?

Any thoughts, suggestions?

  1. OH, wanted to add it would be an early meal and it would be nice if they sold wine by the glass.

      Hey, good luck with the marathon!

      If it were me, I'd go for some very luxurious take-away, and save the public celebration for a few days later when I could enjoy it more.

        Take-away sounds great. Too bad I'm not staying someplace nicer that night, but it's just a simple business hotel. Maybe I'll do a great meal when I get there and the day after go to a ryokan and have dinner there.

        I think I'll carb-reload with a steaming bowl of ramen post marathon night. Yum.
