Big group dinner, mix of veg/omnivores - izakaya suggestions please!

syb | Nov 7, 2010 04:26 PM

I'm traveling to Tokyo this month with family. Our group is made up of vegetarians (who eat fish), sushiphobes (who don't eat raw fish) and omnivore gaijin (who eat everything but will be trying a lot of foods for the first time). There is one Japanese speaker amongst us.

I'm trying to find a place for this picky group of 11 people to dine together on Sat Nov 20. We're staying near Nihonbashi but are willing to travel for a place that has great atmosphere and food. It would be a plus if it's not over-the-top noisy as we'll have a grandpa with us.

I chose an izakaya with the thought they would have something for everyone. I seem to remember they cater to groups well and I like the lively atmospheres that come with izakaya. That said I don't think we want to be at one of the more raucous ones where office workers get out of hand.

If non-izakaya ideas come to mind that would keep everyone happy, I welcome those too. Thanks so much!
