Best in Canada: French Twist: Montreal
Opus Hotel Montreal The acclaimed Opus Hotel in Montreal has been honoured with awards from Wallpaper and Fortune magazines, and its restaurant made Condé Nast Traveller’s Hot List.
CHECK-IN Designed by Canadian interior design firm Yabu Pushelberg and revamped by Robert Bailey, Opus’s contemporary style is a blend of modern design with a dash of history chic, Ã la Old Montreal. It’s within walking distance from the financial district, the restaurants and bars of the entertainment district, Old Montreal and the Plateau Mont-Royal. GOOD EATS Want to stay in? The hotel’s on-site dining establishment, Koko Restaurant + Bar, is helmed by chef Matthew Piercy. The cuisine is modern pan-Asian cuisine with a Western flare. It’s a shared-menu style “just like you would find across Asia. Portions are perfectly sized so that you can order more items to try and experience,” he says. Take this insider tip: “I love our Malabar shrimp, and the unagi maki roll is great.”
