Address: 5040 Spring Mountain Road
Status: Privately open this week, grand opening next Monday
Raku now has a place all its own where you can grab Japanese desserts. Sweets Raku swings open its doors today for invitation-only tastings for friends and family all week through Saturday.
Påtissière Mio Ogasawara plans to serve up a three-course dessert menu from the very white counter with barstools. The bar area overlooks the ovens baking up the desserts with two tables to the side for bigger parties. At the front, bottled waters are displayed, but expect to see rows of wines in the space once they get a liquor license.
So far, the restaurant doesn't plan to have a set menu.
