Thanks, I'll keep those in mind. We're staying at the Park Hyatt, then the Andaz (after spending 2 nights in a ryokan in between), so I'll have them call around to see who's open.
I think your biggest challenge will be stay between Jan. 1 – 3. Many restaurants will be closed. Obviously, restaurants at hotels will be open for guests, but hotels with multiple restaurants may close some of restaurants for New Years on Jan. 1 – 3.

Park Hyatt has New York Grille which can be good option if you want Japanese beef. Beside U.S. beef, New York Grille at Park Hyatt has Japanese beef from Hokkaido, Saga, and Sendai along with Kobe Beef.

It is no secret for local Japanese that hotel restaurants are one place they can count on opening during New Years. Going to hotel restaurants is one of common options for locals if they want to eat out during New Years so hotels restaurants during New Years can get very busy and not unusual to get booked solid by reservation.

Forgot my usual recommendation. If want Sukiyaki, Shabu-shabu, or Teppan Grille (Japanese style steak cooking, a la "Benihana") Kobe Beef at Tokyo and do not mind spending a little, Seryna. Although I do not know if they open during New Years.
