an eclectic mix. a suitier crowd during the week [this IS shinjuku, after all], takashimaya + electronic store shoppers on the weekend, and of course, fans of tomato.

polite, attentive and knowledable. gorgeous diningware.

soft lighting in the main restaurant area, strategic lighting at the bar/counter. neon blue at the entrance. i feel as if i should be more pious. wallspace designed by british design gurus, tomato.

if it's one thing the japanese do well, it is chain restaurants - something i would never be seen dead in at home. maybe it's because sushi just lends itself to this kind of arrangement. daidaiya is arguably the sexiest of the chanto group's offerings. and there's an enormous selection of wine to be had.
