Tokyo - 7 days of eating

i am heading to Tokyo next week with the sole intention of enjoying the fine food Tokyo has to offer. i have looked through many of the wonderfully helpful posts on CH and have come up with the following:

Saturday - dinner: Souten for Yakitori
Sunday - lunch: Sumida for udon, dinner: la Table du Robuchon
Monday - lunch: Kondo for tempura; dinner: Sushi (hope to secure a booking at Yoshitake, Umi or Kanesaka if not too late, any other suggestions?)
Tuesday - lunch: tuna cheek at fish market; dinner: Ryugin or maybe Kaiseki??
Wednesday - Obana for Eel; Dons de la Nature for steak
Thursday - day trip, dinner: maybe Fuku or some Izakaya???
Friday - lunch: Kyubey for sushi, dinner: Butagumi for tonkatsu
Saturday - lunch: Mutekiya for ramen

My partner and I do not drink but we love to eat. We have been to Tokyo a couple of times and traveled around other parts of Japan. We have considered a kaiseki meal but were disappointed with Kikunoi in Tokyo although Kikunoi in Kyoto was amazing. Would consider a kaiseki meal if comparable to those in Kyoto.

I am hoping to get some suggestions for Tuesday and Thursday dinner? In terms of restaurants or type of food.

thanks for help to date.

L'ambroisie - feuilleté de truffe fraîche

I am visiting Paris at the beginning of October and would like to visit L'ambroisie if they have the "feuilleté de truffe fraîche" on the menu. I have trawled through the many threads here for information, searched the web and checked their website from which I cannot see it. I have been to L'ambroisie previously and thought it was amazing but am thinking to try somewhere different unless they have this on the menu. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
