Our Japanese fine dining restaurant offers the unparalleled combination of thoughtful design and contemporary Robata 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.
With a slew of national accolades under its belt, the Michelin Guide recommended restaurant will add an unprecedented dining experience to Oakbrook’s restaurant landscape. Roka Akor proudly offers a steak program featuring Japanese and Domestic Wagyu selections. The extensive menu also includes Prime American cuts, from longtime purveyors and partners such as Greater Omaha and Snake River Farms, grilled over a select blend of charcoal in the Robata Grill.
Sushi counter guests (six prime seats will be available) will enjoy a la carte premium, exotic, and rare fish selected daily by the Chef. The sushi program, named “Best Sushi Restaurant in the U.S.” by Travel + Leisure and “Top 10 Sushi Spots in the United States” by Bon Appétit, features fresh fish that will be flown in daily. It is served with fresh wasabi grated at the table, house-made soy sauce, and Himalayan rock salt – a delicate seasoning that does not interfere with the natural flavor of the fish.
The Oak Brook menus will incorporate local ingredients whenever possible into signature dishes, including cold appetizers, hot appetizers, modern style nigiri, and premium sushi and nigiri as well as selections from the robata grill. Adventurous guests can opt for the Omakase – translated as “to entrust the chef” – a personalized tasting menu with exclusive off-the-menu dishes prepared with premium, chef-selected ingredients
A wide variety of time-tested signature favorites will be featured in each area of the menu including the Robata Grilled Yuzu Miso Marinated Black Cod and the Beef Tataki with Truffle Jus.
An open kitchen concept allows our guests to indulge in house-made specialties while watching our chefs in action at the Robata grill and Sushi counter. The dessert program at Roka Akor will feature our signature chocolate cake prepared with a blend of three Grand Cru Valhrona chocolates and served with almond caramel and vanilla ice creams, as well as the Ube Pot de Crème with Toasted Rice Tuile.
