Visiting Tokyo in Feb 2010

radiofoot | Jan 12, 2010 01:24 PM

My wife and I will be visiting Tokyo for 8 nights in Feb. We are staying in Asakusa area. We are primarily interested just in Japanese food (or mostly Japanese food). We're very open-minded with food, and we love traditional, classic cooking as well. Neither of us speak Japanese; we can make reservations in Japanese via a friend but when we're there it'll be just us. So far we have reservations at

Some Ninja themed bar that apparently is sort of kitchy but the food's supposed to be pretty good and the overall experience is supposed to be fairly legit fun-wise

Other places we're considering:
Sens and Saveur (I think that's what it's called but maybe wrong on that)
Daigo (I know by now you're realizing I haven't made it that far down the Michelin list, guilty as charged but I'm getting there)

For dinner, we want one or two absolutely top notch Japanese food experiences ($200-$350/person including drinks), a few really good but less than $150/person including drinks sort of experiences, and a few less than $100/person including drinks places. For lunch, we want about the same only cut those numbers in half.

We also want to make sure that we hit up all the small bites essentials, and we'd like a mix of current hype/well established and totally solid.
