Raku Modern Japanese Cuisine

Raku's new bigger, badder more tatame room-ier West End iteration is the sushi sister spot to their Edina location. It sports a similarly lavish, neo-futuristic vibe, adding a "tatame room" where guests eat sitting on a floor made of opaque, neon-lit panels, so it's sort of like Dance Dance Eat-the-fusion. The expanded menu stocks Kumamoto Oyster 3 Ways (live oysters with cocktail sauce, Ponzu, and mango salsa) and Spicy Kimchee Squid, plus holdovers like a filet topped with white mushroom & toban sauce (served with sake!), Tuna Pizza (served with a high-five for ordering sushi pizza), and the same mega-selection of fish to supplement "dishes served in creative and innovative fashions"... so hopefully you're cool with waiters wearing Zubaz.

They've also got a full lounge that Edina lacks, perfect for enjoying cocktails created with shochu (sort of like the potent, mutant love-child of sake and whiskey), and cold ones ranging from Summit to Kirin, just in case the Fusion alone isn't tasteful enough for you.
