「In general sushi and other recherché Japanese fare is a little much for the likes of world leaders. So they come to Ten-Ichi, where frying is the universal language, and they are happy indeed. Ten-Ichi, also in the Ginza, is the world's most famous tempura restaurant.
Ten-Ichi is wonderful. The montage photograph at the entrance, of Chirac, Annan, Sinatra, Clinton, and Helmut Kohl, all resplendent in white Ten-Ichi bibs, says it all. There's another photo of the Gorbachevs, and another of Henry Kissinger, and a Chagall in the rock-garden waiting area that the artist presented to this, his favorite Japanese restaurant.」
