Marunouchi/Tokyo Station area--early lunch (esp. Brick Square)

prasantrin | Jan 17, 2010 05:02 PM

I'm headed to Tokyo just one day, a Sunday at that. My plan is to go early so I can go to Echire at Marunouchi Brick Square, then have an early lunch so I can get to Ueno Gaguen by noon. I think that means being on a train leaving Tokyo Station by 11:45 which means my lunch will need to be quick.

I wanted dim sum, and Sense is sort of close, but it doesn't open until 11:30, so that's out.

Are any of the restaurants in Brick Square worth eating at? I have no particular preference for any kind of food (Japanese, Italian, whatever), but it has to be fast and solo-diner friendly. And close to Tokyo Station, so I can get to Ueno quickly. And I'd prefer a restaurant that doesn't have a branch in Kansai.

Any recommendations?

Another question--the Dean & Deluca's espresso bar at Tokyo Station have tables and chairs or stools, or is it just take-out?
