Owner and chef Mitsuo Endo has taken Las Vegas’s Asian food scene by storm since opening Raku in 2008. That’s no small feat in city that boasts so much variety in Asian cuisine—particularly along this stretch of road. But Endo’s multiple-award-winning eaterie continues to be a favorite among all comers. Order from the robata grill if you want, but spring for the omakase menu if you can.
