Suggestions for an awesome splurge lunch in Tokyo?

wanalee | Jan 9, 2012 10:10 PM

Hi everybody!

I am headed to Japan tomorrow and am so excited to eat. I want to have two splurge meals, but being on a tight budget, I thought that lunch would make more sense than dinner.

I'd like to have one Japanese meal and one non-Japanese meal. I've looked at Quintessence, which looks amazing. Any other suggestions in case I can't get a reservation there? And, any suggestions for a kaiseki lunch? Kikunoi Akasuka?


PS. How strict are the dress codes for lunch? I am only in Tokyo for a few days before going to the mountains to ski. I have NO nice clothes.. jeans, sneakers, and a flannel is about the nicest it's going to get. Will that be a problem?
