Tokyo Restaurant Advice

BrianB15 | Jan 7, 201905:36 PM     10

Hi Chowhounders! First post here. Know there are a lot of similar topics, but had a few specific questions about restaurants. We're trying to eat at a variety of restaurants while in Tokyo, and are conflicted about a few options. We have confirmed at Amamoto and CHIUnE, and will hopefully be able to get Den as well. We are deciding between these for the last two nights:

- Quintessence vs L’Effervescence
- Kohaku vs Ishikawa

We've read so many conflicting reports (naturally) we are lost what to do! For context, we enjoy lighter food, but for French prefer more modern, "stylish" French rather than more... traditional. We know Quintessence nor L'Effervescence are traditional per se, but which is more fanciful and exciting? And we can't glean what is different between Kohaku and Ishikawa from online reports, so we're hoping to get some insight here. Any other recommendations are welcome!

Thanks everybody!
