I'll be headng to Japan next month and want to try a fantastic fine dining meal. I've looked at the board to make a choice, but just wanted some more information. Some suggestions have likend a few picks to french standbys in New York ( Le Bernadin, Daniel, so on). So also by comparison (if one can be made) I'm looking for a Corton. Corton has been described better than I could here: http://nymag.com/restaurants/reviews/.... But simply stated it is new crop of fine dining, young chef, daring cuisine with french roots, excellent execution, and a bargain at $78 dinner prix fixe menu. Anything like this in in Japan- I'm not limited to Tokyo? Thanks, chowhounds!!!
So, also, if you haven't been to New York's Corton- do yourself a favor and go!!!!
