Best steak in Tokyo?

j_and_s | May 10, 2008 02:22 AM

My wife and I are traveling in Japan; after a week in Tokyo, we're headed down to Kyushu and will be back in Tokyo in about a week. We've been using some of your suggestions and loving them. The one thing we haven't been able to figure out is the best place to have a blow-out steak in Tokyo--we're willing to pay top-dollar, but we don't want to feel ripped off. We took a look at New York Grill and we're suspicious; it seemed to have tourist trap written all over it (empty at 7:30pm on a weeknight, great views, insane prices), and we're afraid we'd be disappointed with it. We want excellent wagyu beef (Kobe or otherwise), prepared perfectly, but we don't need frills like New York Grill's view or anything. Zagat suggests a chain called Jumbo, but that sounds a little weird to us. We'd appreciate any suggestions/guidance you can offer, a.s.a.p. Thanks!
