Raku: Now Open
How is it that Edina doesn't have a Japanese restaurant yet? Crave has a sushi bar and Ikasu Sushi Bar & Lounge did a brief turn at Centennial Lakes, but 50th and France has seemed long past due for a spot where Edinans can teach their tots about the pleasures of raw fish. The new Raku at 3939 W. 50th Street (between the movie theater and Lund's) hopes to change that with its offerings of sushi, sashimi, and maki plus various fusion items such as kimchi squid, hibachi-grilled filet mignon, and tuna pizza.
