WILMINGTON, NC, February 14, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Tokyo-Table, branded as the definitive source for dining enthusiasts, has a single mission – to help you experience Tokyo's most memorable meals. Tokyo-Table shares Kelly Crow's discoveries with insights into culinary technique, cultural experience, and value. Her distinctive combination of perspectives as a professional chef, economist, and Tokyo resident make Tokyo-Table the go-to site for those who want to fully experience Tokyo dining.
While some travelers may prefer haute cuisine restaurants, others may prefer simple, everyday food. What all travelers have in common is the desire to find the best restaurant in Tokyo, however that might be defined by the food enthusiast.
Tokyo-Table recently offered a review of Seisoka, a 2 Stars Michelin Japanese restaurant located in the Minamiazabu neighborhood of Tokyo.
As Crow stated in her review, "In order for a restaurant to receive a Michelin star, there needs to be an element of the chef's personality that is palpable and tangible," "The concept, regardless of the cuisine, needs to convey the feelings, the mood and the intent of the chef. It is very challenging to impart your own personality on every aspect of the dining experience, which is why it's so rare to earn even one Michelin star.
"While I was studying at Le Cordon Bleu I passed by Seisoka twice a day. It was only after a few months that I realized it was even a restaurant when one day the blinds were rolled up and I saw people sitting on tatami mats. Intrigued, I went down the secluded pathway to find the name of the restaurant, but it wasn't there. It was only by asking friends in my neighborhood that I learned the name and reputation, Seisoka, a 2-star Michelin serving Japanese Zen Buddhist cuisine."

The Tokyo Restaurant Guide is considered to be the ultimate guide to where to eat in Tokyo. Currently the list includes 71 restaurants.
"Having visited every restaurant on this list, I can personally guide you to all the best places and why you should visit them," she stated. "Here you will find a wide variety of restaurants, but they all share in common the perfect mix of hospitality, ambience and quality cuisine to create a memorable evening.
"Tokyo has become the gastronomic capital of the world. In a single week, you can dine in the Tokyo branches of some of the best restaurants from all over the world, including Michelin-starred restaurants from France, Spain, Italy, Japan and China, as well as the very best of what Japan has to offer.
"Tokyo, though, is more than just haute cuisine. It's also renowned for fabulous everyday food, with an attention to detail that rivals the best restaurants in the world. Tokyo has 234 Michelin-starred restaurants and 278 Michelin Bib Gourmands. And these are just the beginning.
"Tokyo offers the best food for any price range, impeccable quality, and dedication to service at even the humblest of restaurants. But how to choose? My training as a Le Cordon Bleu trained chef will help you to navigate the Tokyo food scene and find the right place for the right moment."
In addition to the Tokyo Restaurant Guide, Tokyo-Table offers Tokyo dining tips (what you need to know BEFORE you dine in Tokyo), and a blog that offers information on individual Tokyo restaurants including cuisine, neighborhood, awards, price ranges, extra charges and links to each restaurant.
"When I review restaurants," Crow concluded, "I bring all the perspectives together and look at three things: quality from the perspective of a professional chef, the warm hospitality of being invited to share something of a culture, and value for the experience."
