One dinner with family (Raku or LOS)

FattyDumplin | Dec 5, 201410:57 AM     15

We (5 adults and 3 kids) will be spending Xmas in Vegas this year, specifically the nights of the 24th and 25th. I know my in-laws will insist on doing one meal at a buffet, which I'd also love to hear views on for what is best these days since I know it changes so often. But, I have the good luck of being able to direct one dinner myself...

I'm torn between Raku and LOS, knowing they are very different cuisines, but coming from SF, neither cuisine is all that strong. I guess my question would be, if I'm used to eating NYC Thai (which has had rapid evolution to the positive in recent years) and NYC / LA Japanese, which one is going to stand out more.

Also, is Raku even family friendly? I've been to LOS and that seems fine, but Raku, by virtue of the hours, seems much hipper.

I know I probably can't go wrong with either choice, but given a forced rank, which is the more memorable experience?

Thanks in advance.

Raku
