A stay at Akasaka in central Tokyo

This weekend for Heathers birthday we stayed in the Akasaka area of central Tokyo where we had dinner with our good friend Takahira and his wife at Lawery's Prime Rib.
Its a bit upscale and dinner was great and we would definitely recommend you visit for a great meal or special occasion. As the name implies their specialty is Prime Rib, but they have a full menu and the food and service is all very good.
Not a lot of pictures as we really didn't do a lot of sightseeing and just visited a few bars to celebrate Heathers birthday. We visited Omotesando for some shopping before returning on Sunday. For lunch we found our way to one of Tokyos BKs in the stop at Kanda which was fantastic. I know your thinking "BK" whats the big deal? Trust me after 2 years of Hamburger Steki, even the occaisional whopper moment is golden, as is evident by the pile of empty wrappers in front of the birthday girl.
To all the Smorkers out there we would like to point out that after all of these years they have officially banned Smorking on Takeshita St. in Harajuku. Beautiful.

Apparently, according to the sign, you are not allowed to "tout" as well.
