Shinjuku restaurants

Thanks Silverjay, i had come across Uoshin in Roppongi that i was going to check out. I didn't realise they were a chain so having one near my hotel is a real bonus. I have done a google search for Fu'unji and it does indeed look amazing. I had no idea there were so many different types of ramen, I can't wait to try them!

Shinjuku restaurants

I'll be staying at the Park Hyatt for a few nights, followed by the Shinjuku Astina just behind Golden Gai. Thanks.

Shinjuku restaurants

Hi, I am headed to Tokyo in a couple of months and will be staying in Shinjuku. I have planned very busy full days and we will be having lunch at some of the popular/michelin starred establishments. In the evening, after a full days sighseeing I would like to stay near the hotel and eat at casual places. I would like suggestions for good ramen,izakaya, sushi, yakitori and tempura. The yakitori alley looks fascinating, is this a place for tourists who speak no Japenese at all? Is it just a case of wondering and finding a stand that takes yor fancy or can anyone reccommend one in particular? Also, is Golden Gai drinking only? I think I read somewhere that there is a good ramen restaurant there but I could be wrong! Thanks in advance for any help/advice you can give me.

New Years Day Lunch

I will be in Paris over new year, will restaurants be open on new years day for lunch? I imagine a fair few will be shut but I particularly wanted to go to either Chez l'ami Jean or La Ferrandaise. Also, I would like to go to Angelinas for a hot chocolate, is this likely to be open? Any other new years day suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
