Changes are coming to the former Raku sushi restaurant in Dupont Circle.
According to the sushi chain’s newly updated Facebook page, the spot is slated to become Rakuya, a Japanese kitchen and bar. Design renderings posted to the page last week show an interior decked out in dark wooden beams, ornate lanterns, Asian art and white walls.
The sushi eatery announced its temporary closure last summer. Though Raku did not specify exactly when the newly renovated restaurant might open, its website says it’s slated to open some time this winter.
