I've been reading about restaurants in other large cities (New York, Vancouver, etc.) going through hard times because of the current economy. Many top restaurants in NY, for example, are offering special menus at very reasonable prices, discounts off wine, etc. etc., and some restaurants are becoming much easier to get last-minute reservations.
Can the same be said for Tokyo restaurants? I'm thinking of places like Aronia de Takazawa, L'Osier, etc. etc. I can't imagine them offering cheaper menus, but is it any easier to get reservations at these places?
