Best Restaurant When Someone Else Is Paying

Uchi

Uchi's well-earned reputation precedes it, and its menu is so tempting that somewhere between the mesmerizing Uchi Shot (quail egg yolk and sea urchin) and the Tako Pops (octopus on a stick), your date will finally come out of the cuisine-induced haze to realize that the evening will cost more than a car payment. After savoring all that seafood flown in that day from Tokyo's Tsukiji Market, you, however, will be so warmly sated and still be able to make rent.
