XO on Elm Restaurant Review

: Mod décor in bright colors and retro lighting complement the lively atmosphere and creative cooking at XO. The menu is divided into tapas, appetizers and entrées, so diners can design their own experience. Enjoy a small plate of dates wrapped in crisp pancetta and stuffed with chorizo and cream cheese, or share arancini with mozzarella and sweet peas fried to a light crunch. Plenty of dishes are gluten-free and vegetarian, like a creamy pumpkin bisque with goat cheese. For a main course, try chili pomegranate glazed salmon or burgundy braised short rib ravioli. The wine list is less interesting than it should be, but cocktails compensate. For dessert, the coconut bananas Foster with Myers's rum sauce is a must.
