Tokyo's Standing-Only Restaurant

shimada-eater-ginza.jpgThe chef Hiroshi Shimada, who used to be at the three-Michelin-star Azabu Yukimura, has opened a 14-seat restaurant, Shimada, in Tokyo's Ginza neighborhood that is standing-room-only. The ingredients are still top quality and the food ambitious, because Shimada "did not want to give up what [he] had achieved in the past." But, as he explained to Reuters, the turnover makes the concept a viable, successful business. [Reuters]
