The specialty here is shabu-shabu: thin slices of beef cooked in boiling water at your table and dipped in sauce. Normally, despite the price, this is an informal, no-frills sort of meal. Kisoji, which has been serving the dish for more than 60 years, elevates the experience, with all the tasteful appointments of a traditional ryotei—private dining rooms with tatami seating (at a 10% surcharge), elegant little rock gardens, and alcoves with flower arrangements.
