Alternates to Torishiki

BaronDestructo | Sep 12, 2013 11:25 AM

I'm heading to Tokyo in November for my annual culinary pilgrimage and have already started booking through my hotel. Unfortunately, one of the yakitori restaurants my girlfriend had her heart set on, Torishiki, is fully booked...until February 2014!

She was particularly looking forward to a quail egg skewer with a runny yolk center (whenever we've had them elsewhere, the yolk has been hardboiled) and Torishiki's "unique cuts".

I know that the owner/chef previously worked at Toriyoshi in Naka-Meguro, but have been told it pales in comparison.

So, any ideas for similarly outstanding yakitori restaurants? I already tried Birdland and wasn't blown away.

On the other hand, if anyone has a connection at Torishiki and can get us in...
