Naples, FL / Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 12, 2012
Uptown Network today announced that Roka Akor has joined the Uptown Network. Recognized as one of the hottest restaurants in Chicago and voted a top 10 sushi restaurant in the United States by Bon Appetit Magazine, Roka Akor is setting the trend for dining in Chicago. In addition to offering an iPad Wine List, Roka Akor is highlighting Sake and Shochu. By joining the Uptown Network, this app is now available on the Apple App Store for a free download.
“Our beverage program is unique because we have an extensive sake list in addition to our wine program,” said Corporate Beverage Director, Rob Holder. “The popularity of premium sake is soaring but is still misunderstood or intimidating to consumers. I hope to see the Uptown Network iPad Wine List make selecting a sake as carefree as choosing a wine.”
In addition to being available in the restaurant, the Roka Akor app is available to anyone with an iPad for free. People traveling to Chicago can now peruse the menu, sake and wine selections on their personal iPads even before coming to the restaurant.
“We are excited to expand the Uptown Network into the Chicago marketplace,” said Ed Caputo, Co-Founder of Uptown Network. “Roka Akor is a perfect partner to begin with in this great city.”
