Chinatown pastry shop Sweets Raku reopening with new concept

Updated November 9, 2023 - 7:02 am

Raku returns.

Sweets Raku, the popular pâtisserie that closed in June in Chinatown, is reopening Saturday as Casa de Raku, in the same space at 5040 Spring Mountain Road. Sweets Raku was in business for about a decade. Sibling restaurant Raku, which specializes in charcoal-grilled foods, is in the same center.

Casa de Raku is a tapas bar, the restaurant said in a Facebook post, with meats, seafood, beverages and, yes, desserts. The restaurant is launching as walk-in only. Hours are 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. (last order 1:30 a.m.) Thursdays through Saturdays.
