Met up with a great friend I met during my MBA and some of his business colleagues from the DBJ http://www.dbj.jp/en/ ... asked where and what time. One of the few occasions that I don't plan the evening :)
I arrived about 30 minutes late and boom... this arrived. HUGE sticks of kushi asparagus sticks...
5 types of dipping sauces...
This evenings Otoshi (automatic appetizer) was fresh chilled veggies.
Some tasty Motsu-nikomi...
Beers start from 600yen... sake from 700yen for a glass... and we never slowed down the entire evening.
And so 4 guys... 3 hours... 27,000yen! Once again we managed to spend about $300 between the 4 of us. Our last adventure at Suju Dining had the same outcome: http://tokyobelly.blogspot.jp/2013/02/shibuya-hikarie-suju-dining-smooth.html
No shoes inside the restaurant but when we left there were al lined up. Overall it was a really great spot very near Ebisu Station (about a block from http://whatthedickens.jp/ live British pub). Service was quick and super friendly, food great great using excellent ingredients but be ware if you are a drinker the tab will blow up on ya here... I won't be back but definitely recommend it to anyone.
