Roka Akor Gets a National Nod

Did your April Bon Appetit land in your mailbox yet?

Mine just did, and I was happy to see Scottsdale's chic Roka Akor included in restaurant editor Andrew Knowlton's list of ten best new places for sushi. Sure, the place stands out from the crowd more for its unusual robatayaki offerings than its sushi (sit at the counter and you're facing a grill, not a case full of fish), but the raw seafood here is still certainly worth the props. And consider the kickass company it's keeping — San Francisco's Sebo and Las Vegas' Bar Charlie (as in Charlie Trotter) are among the other restaurants mentioned.
