Roka AkorRoka Akor Old Orchard
Like its award-winning London counterpart, Roka Akor restaurant in Chicago brings the unparalleled combination of thoughtful design and contemporary Robatayaki Japanese cuisine. The restaurant’s name is derived from two words: RO and KA. The meaning of the first word is hearth, a gathering place where people socialize and take in the ambience; the latter stands for a burning fire and projecting energy. The name update from Roka to Roka Akor is intended to convey that the North American locations are a reflection of its London predecessor, with its own distinguishing attributes.

“Roka Akor’s contemporary dining room provides a stunning backdrop for the prime steak, grilled vegetables and freshest seafood flown in from around the world being prepared in open view of the diners at the surrounding counter and tables. The centrally located robata grill is the heart of the visual experience.”
