Ryugin review image


Perfect For:Fine Dining

Ryugin is arguably the most famous Michelin spot in Tokyo, outside of Jiro at least. (Just a reminder, nobody here cares you’ve seen Jiro Dreams of Sushi.) The modern twist that chef Yamamoto puts on traditional Japanese kaiseki (multi-course) cuisine has made him a straight-up rock star. Expect dinner to cost $400 or more per person for a meal with both seasonal meat and fish. So, what does $400 get you exactly? Things like “olive beef,” AKA meat that comes from cows who are fed only leaves from olive trees. In terms of vibe, the space matches the food: a modern spin on traditional Japanese style at its best. The dining room is quiet and extremely formal (so formal they ask you not to wear strong fragrances that could get in the way of the food), so make sure you’re cool with that if the price tag alone hasn’t already made you squirm.

Nodaiwa review image

Nodaiwa is an old-school spot known for their excellent unagi (eel). It's a great option for a nicer meal that won't empty your bank account.

Imakatsu review image

Katsu (fried chicken or pork) is a traditional Japanese dish, but Imakatsu is one of few places to get it perfectly right.

Sasagin review image

Sasagin is technically an Izakaya, but we come for its huge selection of sake.

Tsukiji Fish Market  review image

There are plenty of spots to eat at in Tsukiji, but Sushi Dai and Daiwa Sushi are two of the best. Take note: there will be lots of tourists.
