Dining outdoors on Elm Street is the place to be on a warm summer night. Comfy sofas or high-top tables create that outdoor space for a relaxed evening of light dining.

XO On Elm has recently gone back to its original concept as a tapas restaurant and now offers 21 tapas items on the dinner menu. What’s better than tasting a variety of things?

Consider lamb lollipops with a lemon-dressed arugula salad ($7) or Cornish hen pieces with a ginger chili glaze ($5) for a modern take on chicken nuggets. If you are more adventurous, then try bone marrow aside blood-orange oxtail marmalade ($11).

Lighter options include a warm duck salad with arugula topped with Manchego cheese and dried cranberries. Full entrées are available too, from a herb-crusted filet mignon ($29) to pan-seared diver scallops and caramelized shallot couscous with a saffron cream reduction ($27).
