Bartenders:  Cuisine and service are an integral part of the Roka Akor experience, and our beverage program is critical to the experience as well.  Our bartenders have a beverage list that encompasses eastern as well as western style beverages, and must be capable in their knowledge and ability to recommend to guests appropriately. They must be able to properly execute recipes and preparations for all drinks in a timely manner as ordered. Also, because Roka’s standards of cuisine are kept high, the expectations of a bartender’s knowledge of our food are equal to that of our servers, and service standards are no different for a bar diner, a lounge guest, or any main dining room guest.

  1. Beverage recommendation and order
  2. Initial greet of bar guests
  3. Dining room well drink service bar
  4. Food introduction, recommendations, and coursing

Roka Akor brings an innovative combination of contemporary Robata Japanese cuisine and stunning design to four locations across the U.S., including Scottsdale, San Francisco, Chicago and Skokie, IL. Roka Akor’s principle Robata Japanese cuisine is prepared on a twelve-foot robata grill that uses mesquite charcoal and almond wood with flames that can raise temperatures up to 1,900 degrees. 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. In alignment with the restaurant’s name, Roka Akor’s design features a centrally located robata grill that provides the heart of the visual experience, surrounded by rich wood décor and sleek lighting. Guests are encouraged to speak with the chefs about the food to create an interactive and engaging dining experience.
