Here now, a look at the desserts at the new Sweets Raku, which officially debuts today as the sidekick to Raku. Påtissière Mio Ogasawara plans to serve a rotating selection of desserts that includes a three-course tasting with an apertif, appetizer and the main course for $19. Only 21 seats fill out this space, so expect to battle for one on busy nights.
Some of the dishes on the menu include a Japanese roll cake, a sponge cake with a banana custard inside and strawberry and raspberry mousse on top. House-made sherbets change seasonally, but expect to find mango on the menu when it opens. A cheese plate is another option, and Sweets Raku eventually wants to make its own.
Other dishes may include a melted chocolate cake, the Apollo with chocolate and framboise mousse or the stuffed custard pie dubbed the Veil.
Sweets Raku plans to be open Mondays through Saturdays from 3 to 11 p.m.
