Nothing adds sparkle to an ordinary weekday quite like an omakase sushi lunch. This restaurant in the Marunouchi financial district is usually packed with office workers popping in during their lunch break for a mid-week treat, but show up before 1pm and you’ll have a good chance of nabbing a seat.
The standard lunchtime omakase menu has a good variety of nigiri sushi and side dishes like chawanmushi (savoury egg custard) and ikura (marinated salmon roe) over rice. The vibe here is polished but fuss-free, so you don’t have to feel intimidated if there’s a particular fish or ingredient you’re not a fan of – the chefs behind the counter are happy to prepare a replacement for you.
You can only book a table for lunch if you’re planning to order the ¥7,700 course. The ¥3,850 lunch course doesn't take reservations, but it has all the goodies everyone looks forward to in an omakase menu, including prized uni and chutoro (fatty tuna).
