Give me cool Tokyo restaurant ideas

aventinus | Nov 28, 201105:42 AM

I'm leaving Tokyo in January. I've been thrilled with the food in Tokyo so far, and I'd like to eat at as many interesting, delicious places as I can between now and January. Price is not much of a consideration. More important considerations are that they take reservations in English (very important) and); it is seafood (or poultry) and vegetable focused (I avoid meat); and it's good for dining solo (but if they'll take me, that's cool).

Here are some good places I've been so far:

Sushi Saito. Right up my alley.

Kikunoi. Excellent. Beautiful kaiseki, seafood-focused, friendly to English speakers.

Daigo. Like Kikunoi but vegetarian (and in some ways, even more impressive).

Pierre Gagnaire. I called ahead and said seafood only, and they accomodated nicely. This was a terrific experience, but if I'm going to do French again it had better be extraordinary.

Rakutei. Good tempura, friendly to English speakers.

Please give me some more places I shouldn't miss before I leave.
