I took this pic of the Joel Robuchon restaurant in Ebisu on my way home from somewhere, I don’t remember where, in February. Even schmancy places like this are feeling the pain of the recession, according to a friend in the restaurant industry in Japan, as people are choosing to eat at home instead of splurging on several hundred dollar dinners. The tall building looming behind it is the Westin.
