Recent ranking of top Yoshoku restaurants in Tokyo

E Eto | Apr 18, 2010 09:32 PM

I was going through some back issues of food magazines, and I revisited an article ranking the top Yoshoku restaurants in Tokyo. I placed post-it notes to remind me on my next trip to Japan, but on my recent trip I didn't even hit Tokyo, so it'll have to wait at least another year. No reason it shouldn't help some other chowhounds in search of some good Yoshoku cuisine. I've been to a few of the restaurants listed, but several seem to be newly emerging with young chefs and perhaps an updated take on this classic cuisine. I noticed that besides Rengatei and Shiseido Parlor, many of the old giants didn't make the top 20 (Taimeiken, Grill Mantenboshi, as well as Acacia) according to the editors of Otona no Shumatsu.

Here's the ranking I read. I've only been to Edoya and Dom Pierre (both very good experiences), but am hoping to visit several in this listing on my future visits to Tokyo, especially since top quality yoshoku cuisine is an "only in Japan" experience. I've never found a place that has come close to being even a mediocre yoshoku restaurant outside of Japan.
