Met up with my parents for lunch at Raisu which I found out through instagram before they opened. They did a pretty good job hyping this place up. Decor is fantastic, it totally has the Japanese vibe where they yell Japaenese like the group's other restaurants. 

My parents reserved a couple dishes which have a daily limit of 10 servings which was cool. I really can't describe what exactly I ate but I'll try my best through the photos. 

Seafood Tartar, probably the best dish of the day cause the bread was straight fire.

Do don't ask me how much this came out to. I'm sure the meal was way over $100 for sure. But the overall experience was good. The food seemed to be overhyped as I wasn't blown away. Service was perfect. It's a solid 4/5 though.
