Ginza has been all abuzz of late over the grand re-opening of Mitsukoshi’s landmark department store (www.mitsukoshi.co.jp). Among the new venues on the dining floors is Gyunta (www.gyunta.com; 03-6228-6915), the Tokyo sister shop to a popular Kobe okonomiyaki restaurant. Long a favorite with locals, Gyunta promises to bring the “true Kansai flavor” to Tokyo with hot-off-the-grill offerings like modan-yaki, a version of okonomiyaki with soba or udon noodles. There are also plenty of teppan dishes like yaki-tofu, chijimi or chicken wings. But don’t let the down-home cuisine fool you—the clean, modern décor definitely lives up to its classy depato surroundings.
