Meet the Very White Dessert Hot Spot Sweets Raku

Meet the very white Sweets Raku, the sister restaurant to Raku and a spot to dine on $19 three-course Japanese treats. Here the adorable staff dons crisp, all-white uniforms with bright red aprons while they work behind the dessert counter and its 13 seats. To the left, two tables, making this 21-seater one of the most in demand dessert spots in Vegas. For the opening on Tuesday, 74 diners came through the doors, more than the staff expected.

Toward the front, find racks now holding water but soon to carry wines, as soon as they get their liquor license.

To find Sweets Raku, look for the giant spoon with a bow on it hanging out front; the restaurant, following a very Japanese tradition, has no sign. Take a look around.
