Hotel Le St-James is home to one of Montreal’s culinary gems, XO Le Restaurant. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, it’s a popular destination for tourists and Montreal locals. Chef Michele Mercuri only uses the freshest, most seasonal ingredients in crafting the restaurant’s modern European cuisine. XO is open daily, featuring both a six-course tasting menu (with wine or champagne pairing) and an à la carte menu for dinner. The dinner tasting menu includes options such as veal tartare with onion sponge, red pepper purée, pickled honey mushrooms, marinated veal tongue and spruce; seared tuna with eggplant purée, artichoke escabèche, roasted red pepper and smoked lentils; and a delicious sticky toffee pudding with coffee, coconut spuma and sour cream ice cream. And if you’re too tired to dress for dinner during your stay at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel, there’s always the option of staying in the comfort of your room or suite — XO offers a 24-hour room service menu.
