Formerly located in Jinbocho, Den re-opened along Gaien Nishi-dori in between Harajuku and Jingu Gaien in early December 2016. Chef Zaiyu Hasegawa, a graduate of some of Kagurazaka's most venerable eateries, crafts dishes that mainly centre around fish and vegetables and go perfectly with selected sakes. The menu lists only two options, both omakase deals (¥9,500 or ¥12,000). It's not just the mere gastronomical extravaganza, but also the inventive, playful twists that are added to the dishes that give Den its signature touch. Reservations are hard to come by – but very rewarding if you do manage to nab one.
