Metro: Akasaka's insider take:

Meals don't get more intimate than at Aronia de Takazawa, and not just because its dining room holds only two tables. Chef Yoshiaki Takazawa prepares his French dishes in full view of guests from a raised, stainless steel platform. There's a clear Japanese spin on Takazawa's creations—the ratatouille, for example, resembles a sushi roll and is to be eaten in one bite, and most of the seasonal ingredients are sourced from Japan—but rather than the silent treatment encountered at most small restaurants in Tokyo, he makes the experience a welcoming one with the help of his cheerful servers and playful dishes. Diners have the option of a 7-, 9-, and 11-course meal, but be prepared for a few surprises.—Rebecca Willa Davis

Open daily 6 to 9 pm.
