The Apollo

This new restaurant in the spendy Ginza district is a marvel not just for its 120-bottle wine list, but also the reasonable prices in a city that loves its markups. Perhaps that’s because it’s an import of a successful Greek fusion restaurant from Sydney, Australia. Greek wines are well-represented, from Sigalas and Gaia to low-sulfur, new-wave wines like Thymiopoulos Xinomavro Nature 2014; the list is padded out with interesting bottles from France and Australia. It’s a big place (thus not a difficult reservation) with a colorful view of the lights of Ginza at night—and the lamb chops are grilled to perfection.
