Because of the cold winter weather, we opted to spend some meals underground so we wouldn't freeze walking around outside. Marunouchi is one of those places in Tokyo which is perfect for underground walking. It's a whole city down there that connects to most of the buildings in the area.
The new Otemachi Tower (Ootemori) has a great selection of restaurants with varying cuisines for varying budgets.
For a fun yakitori meal, Tori Kansuke is the spot. It's a corner restaurant with tables low and high. The restaurant serves specializes in classic yakitori dishes, like grilled chicken parts and karaage, as well as kamameshi rice. Plus the drink selection has something for everyone - wine, Japanese craft beer, sakes, sochus, etc.
This is a great place to check out if you're looking for a light meal, or an epic meal where keep ordering and drinking as the night goes on.
