I'll be heading back to Tokyo in late October for a wedding, and will be in town for 1 week. I would like to treat my hosts to a good sushi meal and would like some recommendations. Here's what I'm looking for:
- I'll be based in Koenji; really hoping to find something good nearby (either within a 20 minute walk or a couple of subway stops from Koenji station).
- Budget of ¥10,000 max per person for omakase (mid-level price range) - lunch or dinner.
- I would prefer traditional Edomaezushi rather than overly sauced, "newer" style, but that's not a must.
- Friendly chef and relaxed atmosphere that is conducive to having good conversation and fun. Not looking for "you can hear a pin drop on the other side of the bar" atmosphere for this meal.
Any recommendations greatly appreciated, thank you!
Also, what fish will be in season in late October?
