Solo traveller dining in top restaurants. Are there highend foodie meetup groups i can contact?

erickp | Aug 26, 201111:06 AM    

i want to try some restaurants like Aronia de Takazawa, Les Creations de Narisawa, Quintessence, Ryugin, Ristorante Aso,...etc

But i think all of these (at least some who has already rejected my reservation requests) have a 2 person minumum at the table.

Well, i don't know anyone who wants to spend $300+ on dinner, and i don't want to pay for them either...

so, is there some sort of high-end foodie club/board/forum/meetup group in tokyo, that might want to organize a meetup or join me for dinner?

In Los Angeles, there are a few of them that goes to these places and plans ahead.

i really want to check out these places without paying double.

Actually, do you think they will let me pay 2x....but just include a bigger wine/sake pairing, and more dishes/bigger portions plus service charge?

Thanks!
