Marunouchi (Tokyo station area) recs

Tons of stuff on the 5 or 6th floor of the Maru Biru. Some not too cheap though.

Favorite Bistros in Tokyo (southwest side)?

Does anyone have any recommendations for bistro-style French in SW Tokyo, i.e. Shibuya-ku, Meguro-ku, Setagaya-ku, Minato-ku areas? I've always liked Pot Bouille in Ebisu and I used to quite like Cou Cou in Meguro (sadly gone). Of course a decent bistro food-oriented wine list is a huge plus (this is my main gripe with Petit Tonneau -- too expensive for some really so-so wines). Izakaya Vin of course also is a big favorite in Shibuya for the food and wine, but I don't love the space itself and it's not really a bistro. I've met some interesting characters there though ( and by the way, the Cou Cou chef went here when Cou Cou closed).

Anyone have any good tips in this area?

Who loves MosBurger?

Bring back that hot chicken burger -- that's all I ask. Otherwise I'm going with the spciy MOS cheeseburger
