Two Rooms Grill/Bar: This rakish resto, situated in Roppongi, is outfitted in sleek wood and leather and serves up simple yet sophisticated dishes such as Foie Gras French Toast with Chestnut Honey and a mouthwatering Iwate Iwachu Pork Chop. It’s a scene—from CEOs to models—so show up like you belong. tworooms.jp
Bice Ristorante: This Italian eatery is famous among natives. After working up an appetite shopping in nearby Ginza, have the confit of rabbit or mushroom risotto beloved by Tokyo celebs and corporate high rollers. With only 37 tables available, be sure to have your hotel concierge secure a reservation early in the day. bicetokyo.com
Sukiyabashi Jiro: This sushi counter in the bottom of a building adjacent to the Ginza metro station would be considered a hole in the wall in most cities. Not in Tokyo. With merely 10 seats, three Michelin stars, and a reservation harder to get than the President’s missile codes, sushi master Jiro Ono’s spot is a legend. He serves you 20 pieces of sushi (that he selects), one at a time, and once he’s finished, you are done as well. Price? Approximately $375. Yes, it may be the most expensive 15 minutes of your life; but think of the story you’ll have for the peeps back home. sushi-jiro.jp
