Waku Ghin

It may have dropped off the World’s 100 Best list this year, but we don’t care. Top‑notch, personalized service makes the hefty $450 price tag for his 10‑course degustation menu worth the splurge at this one-Michelin-starred establishment. Expect a sublime European/Japanese feast with exquisite creations using premium ingredients, such as grade nine wagyu and Hokkaido uni (sea urchin), in an understated, elegant space. Hold your breath for signatures like the botan shrimp with sea urchin and caviar, and the wagyu with wasabi and citrus soy. There’s also a massive wine list, and over 100 options for premium sake, including two developed specifically for the restaurant: Isojiman M for Waku Ghin and Masuizumi Platinum Nama for Tetsuya’s.
