Here it is, my final post from Tokyo! For our last night, I had booked us in at a restaurant with great reviews, Seryna Shinjuku, that was a short walk from our hotel. We found the building that the restaurant was located in and eventually figured out where the elevator was – the restaurant is situated on the 52nd floor of the Sumitomo building. When we arrived, we were greeted and shown to a reserved table right by a window, with fabulous night views of the city.
Our waitress didn’t speak much English, but she was friendly and helpful and we managed to order a set menu with appetizers, Kobe beef shabu shabu, and dessert, as well as a carafe of sake, which came in this lovely glass teapot:
Here is the rest of the meal, descriptions in the captions:
Seryna Shinjuku is definitely a splurge, but if you want a lavish, romantic meal in Tokyo, I highly recommend it. Just be warned, I read in some reviews that if you order shrimp or lobster they bring it to the table live before cooking it for you.
