Scottsdale's über-stylish Roka Akor, a spin-off of London-based Roka, sets itself apart from the Valley's myriad other Japanese restaurants by specializing in robatayaki, Japanese-style grilled dishes; a few are traditional, but many have a creative, contemporary spin. Of course, there's sushi here, too, as well as other top-notch tapas-style dishes. Honey-glazed grilled duck breast, butterfish tataki with white asparagus, and kama meshi - traditional rice hot pots - are among the highlights. And surprisingly (for a Japanese place), the desserts are scrumptious. Turns out, they were created by a French pastry chef.
