Suggested by Katherine: Hi everyone. I've been hearing lots of good things about Roka Akor, and thought it was time to give it a try :-) Reservation is for 4.
This spot made it onto 7X7's 10 biggest restaurant and bar openings of 2013. From 7X7:
"I'll say I was a little skeptical, following the disappointment of another high-end, London-based, Asian chain concept that debuted last year (Hakkasan), about the coming of Roka Akor. But the London-based sushi-and-robata concept with a high-end bar turned out to be just what downtown was missing, complete with a cozy bar downstairs helmed by Alembic vet Daniel Hyatt. Chef Roman Petry put together a fun and easy-going menu, throwing together things like uni and chicharrones, and dressing a lobster-like Madagascan tiger prawn with yuzu, chili and lemon. And sushi chef Mike Lim is doing fanciful, lavish sashimi presentations befitting any big night out."
