This is my first trip outside of NRT and the wife wants to go exploring. She has been there several times, but really from a hit or miss perspective on the dining. I have been told/informed that Tokyo is a lot like HK in that the nicer restaurants need reservations even if they are completely empty when you arrive. We'll do the local restaurants that are close by and are more intimate, but are there any really high value (amazing food for the price) that we should hit? I was really into "Jiro Dreams of Sushi" and want to give his place a go or maybe his son's place since it may be "not as expensive." C'mon what's $500-600 for a dinner for two.
