Splurging lunch places - my "halfway" itinerary checkup

oferl | May 13, 2012 01:20 AM

I have in my list at this point for the "fancy"/tasting lunches EMP, Yasuda and Momofuku KO.
Regarding Yasuda - not sure yet, maybe i will decide for lunch Omakasa at another place if i may think that VFM might be not far at a more "modest" place.
EMP and MKO - i understand reserving is very hard for MKO lunch.. Are there other places that may be contenders in this category for a very special tasting lunch, maybe even on a "cheaper scale" and easier to reserve?

For early dinners, i will also go for Kyo Ya full tasting menu and maybe Kajitsu. Again will be glad to know on other options, maybe options for other kitchens and less on the Kaiseki/JP side?
