Looking for a recommendation for our first dinner in Tokyo, hoping for something reasonably close to Shinbashi. It doesn't need to be fine or deeply authentic but I'd prefer to avoid complete tourist traps if possible. (we have lots of fine and authentic planned for the rest of the trip). Need to be flexible on time coming from the airport so nothing where reservations are a must.
Second question, I read a post here a couple years ago about a place but now I can't find the post. Small place, maybe difficult to find, you buy a drink from the cooler and get 3 small plates of food to go with it for one price, want more food, buy another drink. Ring any bells?
