Sometimes it’s fun to pretend to be rich for a day.
My friend and I got all classy at the New York Grill in the Park Hyatt Tokyo where much of Lost In Translation was so famously filmed.
Yes, this place is expensive, but it’s nice to do these kind of things now and then. Personally, I was more thrilled about the martinis and duck fat fries than anything else.
