Help for foodie and non-foodie in Tokyo!?!

Thanks to all for your suggestions. We have decided to go with Tapas Molecular Bar. I preferred Ryugin, but the wife preferred Tapas. Guess who won? I'll report back on my experience when I return.

Help for foodie and non-foodie in Tokyo!?!

Thank you for the suggestions. We decided to go a different direction. I am currently holding reservations at both Ryugin and Tapas Molecular Bar. Have you any experience at either of these? If so, which do you recommend? From reading the boards, both seem to be enjoyable.

Help for foodie and non-foodie in Tokyo!?!

Hi all. So, I have trolled the boards for a while, but am a new Chowhound member. I have an interesting, but not so uncommon problem. My wife and I will be overnighting in Tokyo (at the Peninsula) in late October on our way to Bali. We need to find a restaurant that will appeal to the adventurous foodie in me, and the non-adventurous eater in her. We originally were going to try one of the Michelin rated sushi restaurants, but have decided (much to my disappointment) that it is too risky, since my wife is the typical Americanized tuna-salmon-toro and a spider roll sushi eater. I would be in Omakase heaven at Jiro or Mizutani, but she would more than likely not eat much of it, and at 22,000 yen/person.....well, you get the picture.

Does anyone have a recommendation for a top rated restaurant, somewhat near our hotel in Ginza, where I can get my sushi fix and my wife can find something that she will find acceptable as well? Cost is no object, but a great dining experience is!

Thanks in advance!
