La Table d'Eugene

@Rio Yeti & John Talbott: Thank you so much for your help. I wanted to have an idea of how much the dinner would probably cost so I can calculate my budget. We are staying at a hotel so I think we are gonna have to go to a brasserie so my husband can get his escargot fix. Thank you again :)

La Table d'Eugene

Hi all,

I've heard a lot of good things about La Table d'Eugene and would like to go there for dinner. Do you know how far in advance I need to make reservation for dinner? My husband and I will be in Paris at the end of May. Does anyone know how much their dinner prix fixe menu cost? I found their lunch menu prices but not dinner. Do they also have escargot (since this is Paris, I'm assuming they will offer escargot in the menu)? We didn't get to eat it last time & my husband would love to have some while we are in Paris.
Many thanks in advance for your help.

I requested my hotel concierge to reserve sushi Shimizu for me but the concierge was told that the restaurant only takes reservation on the day of :(
The restaurant also told her that they don't have an English menu (which I expected...not a problem) so I'm assuming the 8500 yen menu is an omakase lunch set menu, right? Would I be okay if I just say hachi dai oyaku yen omakase chushoku?
I hope they will have seats available on the day that we plan to go there. Thanks again.

How long would a 10-13 course tempura meal take?

Thank you for the tips. There are way too many food items I want to try in Japan. I'm drooling over your description of snacks....mochi dango, soy donuts, takoyaki...they all sound so yummy. I can't wait to get there. Thank you so much for your help.

Thank you for your help prasantrin. Where do you usually buy snacks in Kyoto? I'll check out Spoon. Have a great time in Kyoto this weekend

Thank you for the tip Ninisix. I was looking at google street view and it seems like in order to get to Sushi Shimizu, I have to go into the alley between a restaurant and "Tokyo Bunnix"? Is that correct? What's the easiest way to get there from the Shimbashi station? Thank you so much for your help.

Thank you for your response prasantrin. I hope you had a great time at Tempura Kondo. The sweet potato tempura sounds really good. :)

Hi all,

Sorry if this seems like a stupid question. I reserved seating for a lunch tempura meal in Tempura Endo Yasaka Kyoto. How long would a 10 or 13 course meal take? It seems like the chef cooks each tempura one by one unlike here in US where all of them would be served at one time. I'm trying to schedule a tea ceremony after we leave Tempura Endo Yasaka so i want to make sure we will have enough time for each activity. I'd appreciate your response. Many thanks in advance.

Thank you for your response Ninisix. I think I'm gonna have my hotel concierge call & make reservation for me. How far in advance should I reserve Sushi Shimizu or Sushi Iwa? Also I found the reviews on tablelog using google translation but I want to make sure that it's the right restaurant. Do you mind confirming it for me?

Thank you so much :)

Thank you for your response akated. I'll do some more research on the 5500 set at Sushi Saito. How about Sushi Kyubey lunch set? Thank you for telling me about Ninisix's sushi places for lunch. I'll read through them to find recommendations.

Sushi Saito in Tokyo for lunch or other sushi places in Tokyo for $50-75pp?

Hi Chowhounders,

I've started being a lurker recently when I began planning my trip to Japan at the end of May. I've read a lot of good reviews on Sushi Saito and further research showed that the restaurant has lunch set price at 5500JPY per person. Is that true? I wish my budget allows me to eat at Sawada but that's not possible at the moment. All I can afford for one expensive sushi meal would be anywhere from $50-75pp and it seems like the lunch menu would be more affordable than dinner menu at the expensive restaurants. Also, do I need to make reservation for lunch in advance? Is there a minimum price requirement for reservations at Sushi Saito? Any recommendation for other sushi restaurants in that price range just in case if Sushi Saito is booked?
I'd appreciate your feedback. Many thanks in advance :)
