Dining Guide

Roka Akor

High style and gracious service are hallmarks at this upscale but approachable Japanese steakhouse. Order this to go: The sushi, even to go, is impeccable, and the Wagyu beef is extraordinary (though the perfectly medium-rare sliced sirloin, with grilled bone marrow, is better hot off the grill). No quibbles with a generous hamachi roll crowned with slivers of serrano and little dollops of creamy wasabi. A winning mizuna salad is made pretty with pink grapefruit, radish, bits of asparagus, and avocado, with a gingery dressing. Sumptuous shrimp and lobster dumplings are delicate-skinned, with a bit of chew, enfolding a healthy dollop of sweet meat. Pro tip: The family meal options (beef, seafood, or vegetarian) are terrific. Online orders are easy and popular, judging by the countless packages lining the countertop.
