Fodor's Expert Review Rangetsu

$$$$ Ginza Japanese

Japan enjoys a special reputation for its lovingly raised, tender, marbled domestic beef, and if your budget can bear the weight, Rangetsu serves excellent dishes with this beef as a star ingredient. Try the signature shabu-shabu or sukiyaki course for a primer. For a blowout celebration, call ahead to reserve a private alcove, where you can cook for yourself or have a kaiseki meal brought to your table by kimono-clad attendants. Although dinner can damage the wallet, there is also a good variety of lunch sets available from ¥1,750. The location, opposite the Matsuya Department Store, is just as elegant as the restaurant itself.
