Final plea for advice in Tokyo

gambit50 | Feb 27, 2008 06:55 PM

Yes, I realize most of you are sick of me by now and I hardly blame you.

I have a list of restaurants assembled and I have the possibility of about 15 meals but I am sure it will end up being about 7-10 of my choosing due to the lack of interest, knowledge and taste of my company who reside in Tokyo. Honestly, if they just would make some reservations for me, I would be happy. I have none, a complete disaster I realize but at this point, I am just going to make them, myself, when I am there by phone or in person.

These are not in any order of preference and has been assembled by filtering results of various guides and sites, including this one. Trying to have spots in different neighborhoods and of different price points, etc. For advice, note, I am not so into spending 30000 JPY on sushi/sashimi or steakhouses.
If there are some to eliminate or add, please chime in. I just have a terrible feeling about missing out on so many I want to go to due to this reservations nonsense.
I have some more rambling after the list.

Ristorante Aso
Takebayu
Kikunoi
Ristorante Honda
Bocuse
Kondo
Kyoju
Tateru Yoshino
Le Manoir d"Hastings
Fukamachi
Chez Tomo
Kyoju
Bon Chemin
Agout Du Jour
Siciliano Masshu
Cicada
Nishi
Vin Picoeur
El Pulpo
Silom Soi
Banrekiryukodo
A Ta Guele
Aburiya Fudo
Tetsugen
Buzenbo
Firehouse
Uguisudani-En
Kurumaya
Le Dessin
Maeda-ya
Isen
Beacon
Lamb Junkie
Tori Shin
Anzai
Homework's
ARMS
Toriyoshi
Iseya
Galali
Bongout Noh
Jusanya
Kaikaya
and I think Suzuran and Sakurazaka in Shibuya for ramen

I am going to make a most concerted effort to go to Bon Chemin, Cicada, Rist. Aso and Vin Picoeur and possibly Kikunoi but I might go in Kyoto. A few others will be right behind those, mostly higher end just that they are more of a pain. Any knowledge of places from the above where I can walk in and get a seat, any time of day, would be great.

Also, have done the search for the "cheap, great" joints, noodles or whatever, for some reason, it is not as well organized and easy to just read off a list as I would have thought.

I admit, there might be ONE more post for whatever I have forgotten.

Thanks in advance.
