When out of ideas in Ginza just head off to a tall building that usually houses several floors of restaurants... on this day I visited Ginza Velvia-Kan (http://mi-mo.jp/lng/eng/velvia.html)
A great restaurant layout with several seating options... counter seating near the entrance, tables, then on a higher tatami level counter seating surrounds the chef hard at work then in the very back there are 4 tatami seating tables... http://r.tabelog.com/tokyo/A1301/A130101/13101416/dtlphotolst/3/
Ordered the "Nikomi Hamburger Teishoku" 950yen. In Japanese "Teishoku" meals normally come with the main, salad, soup, rice and drink.
Free tea comes with the meal.
Very tender hamburger with a very rich sauce that seemed to have been heated to a slight thickness... very heavy and tasty.
Although I ordered the Hamburger Teishoku the daily special grilled white fish seemed to be a very big hit.. So if you go with someone I'd suggest one person to try the fish and share.
But I actually only ventured into this spot because one of my all-time-favorite spots sold out of their lunch... http://tokyobelly.blogspot.com/search?q=arossa. Anyways this place had a very high foodie ranking of 3.73pts... guess dinner is well worth a try!
