It had been recommended to us as a must-go place in New York City. Our experience was very disappointing. The cocktails were insipid, the bread roll substandard, and the linguini with shrimps and mussels quite a disappointment (we left most of it). This restaurant opened in 1913 and maybe the restaurant never evolved -- or it is intended for a... More

We had a very tasty lunch here. We arrived shortly before noon so the place was not yet busy. Our server was terrific in explaining options and even asked the chef if he would prepare a dinner menu option for me - which the chef did. Both the server and the staffer shucking the oysters were knowledgable of the daily... More

The restaurant is located an easy walk from the Shinagawa station, Tokyo. The interior, as well as the menu, is typical American. We visited for a late lunsj/brunsj, and found the food to be quite good, but not extraordinary. We had different kind of oyster dishes, as well as other more typical dishes. The service is good and the atmosphere... More

You should book a table in advance to avoid waiting in a queue. Raw oysters are must to taste. Fish and chips are also good to have as well as Caesar salad.

Located inside Grand Central Station, this establishment revels in fresh seafood and fish of any variety imaginable. It is huge, but book ahead for guaranteed seating, as it is very well known, especially around the luncheon hour.

Within Shinagawa station comes this open space restaurant serving great, fresh oysters from different places. Made for a fun business networking dinner. Besides mentioned fresh oysters, they do have a solid wine selection. We tried some of the other food as well but the oysters stand out, everything else was pretty much standard. Menus come in English as well, staff... More

Staying in Shinagawa / Gotanda

Neighbourhood Profile
Shinagawa / Gotanda
In Shinagawa, an office district shares space with luxury residential buildings and the scene is constantly changing with rapid development. Ikedayama park and Togoshi park are great places to see beautiful traditional Japanese gardens with ponds, as well as enjoy the changing seasons. Shinagawa was a post and a port town during the Edo era and the lavish old Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples at Shinagawa and Ebara are very popular. It's a great place to get in touch with the old Edo atmosphere on a pleasure boat cruising along the canal. The neighboring area around Gotanda station is a study in modern contrasts filled with unique restaurants and a lively nightlife.
