Otemachi: Yakitori
Birdland (Otemachi: Yakitori)
Open 11am-1:30, 5-10:30pm. Closed weekends.

While dinner at Birdland's Michelin-starred main branch in Ginza can be a bit daunting, this Marunouchi outpost is much more accessible, while still offering exceptionally high-quality ingredients and professional service. Despite the name, the menu features grilled pork and lamb, fantastic duck with leek, and a good assortment of vegetables in addition to the excellent chicken.

Other specialties of the house include a tasty liver pate, oyako-don, grilled cheese, and tofu salad. And specials of the day are always worth checking out. Drinks options cover both sake and wine by the glass or bottle, with some unusual selections such as Gruner Veltliner. Budget around Y5-6000 at dinnertime, Y1500 for lunch.
