Koko: Montreal's Foodie Hot Spot

Koko is Montreal's new foodie hot spot

It’s out with the old and in with the new at Opus Hotel, where former Verses chef Michele Forgione has taken over the kitchen at the hotel’s hot spot of a restaurant, Koko, and replaced the former Asian-Quebecois fusion menu with contemporary market cuisine. Local foodies and visiting gourmands are flocking here to sample dishes including seared scallops with chickpea panelle and succulent ricotta gnocchi with braised short rib. 10 Sherbrooke St. W.—Janna Zittrer
