aRoqa embraces celebration by merging authentic Indian flavors with unique presentations to wow discerning New York and global palates.
aRoqa’s menu unites diverse flavors inspired by its name
In India, a “roka” ceremony is where friends and family come together to enjoy the engagement of a couple and celebrate by sharing a meal.
At a "roka", the energy in the atmosphere is palpable, spirits are lifted, the air is filled with laughter, song and dance. The courting couple exchange playful glances. Under the canvas of the sky, rings are exchanged.
It is intimate. It is lively. It is pure.
Inspired by this poetic ceremony, was born aRoqa - an immersive culinary experience with the belief that food brings us closer.
