If you want to live in a town with endless restaurants than there is no better place than Kichijoji. Friend reserved La Befana for a bday dinner.
I'm totally a beer guy but when I dine with this group of wine lovers I get a little bit of everything. The red was organic wine Bricco Al Sole - SYRAH TERRE SICILIANE was soooo mellow... even fully enjoyed by this non wine drinker.
One of the highlights was the lamb chop... oooohhh not too lamby and so tender.
Penne Arrabiata always a hit with me... very flavorful but avoid eating the red peppers!
Very creamy pasta with scallops... yum!
The cake we bought at Fujiya. There is a 1,500 yen cake charge if you bring sweets in from outside. Might be advisable to call the restaurant in advance to have them prepare a bday dessert plate.
Super friendly staff and great food... can't go wrong. Now for the Jackpot reference. Back in the day before all these great beer deals started to pop-up I often went to Jackpot Izakaya in Ebisu for their 2 hour 1,000 yen all you can drink menu. Anyways seems this restaurant company has many themed restaurants and this is one of them. http://tokyobelly.blogspot.jp/2009/12/ebisu-jackpot.html
