Tokyo dinner and lunch before I leave...

meaganl | Jun 19, 2008 06:08 AM

Hello all,

I am in Tokyo now, bound for Kyoto tomorrow. My question is for when I return to Tokyo, though. I will be back on Tuesday afternoon and I am leaving Japan Wednesday evening. I will be by myself so I will have a chance to be a foodie without having to convince other non-foodies to trek somewhere with me for the food :)

I would love to eat at one of the Michelin restaurants. At the moment, I am thinking of going to Joel Robuchon's La Table for either lunch or dinner on Tuesday - most likely lunch. From what I gather, there are multiple locations? Does it matter which one I go to? And do I need to make a reservation for lunch? (If it's not too late...) I guess I should say that the reason that I am thinking La Table is because it seems like it has a fairly reasonably priced lunch. I would ideally like to keep the total under or around 5k yen.

Then my next question is where should I go for my other two meals? I am staying at the Metropolitan Marunouchi right at Tokyo station. I took a look at (wonderful site!) and have some ideas but I would love to get some input from all of the experts.

Thank you so much in advance!
