Tourism Hamilton's 2010 Restaurant of the Year, Incognito treats diners to a locally sourced fine dining experience that's relaxed and romantic. Like the tax code, Incognito's diverse menu changes seasonally for best effect, offering patrons a la carte dishes, and table d'hote options that snap with fresh flavours. Embark on epicurean exploits with an appetizer of seared ahi tuna sashimi ($11.95), or exercise incisors with a helping of carpaccio ($11.95), accented with shaved parmesan reggiano. Diners can mine previously undiscovered depths of deliciousness with the veal strip loin ($22.95), pan-seared and dressed in a wild berry and cassis reduction, and reformed carnivores enjoy a bevy of beefless options, such as the butternut squash ravioli ($17.95), which rafts down a river of garlic cream sauce with grape tomatoes and spinach. The chef's daily feature, crafted fresh and priced to market, provides a culinary surprise that doesn't involve blindfolding a can of SpaghettiOs. Prix fixe dinner selections are also available and include an appetizer, entree, and choice of dessert, made in-house.
Bright wall sconces illuminate the lively dining space, where stiff white tablecloths and tawny cushioned armchairs await diners with subdued sophistication. Incognito's Corktown location and proximity to the theatre district make it an ideal location to enjoy a pre-show meal or special occasions, such as birthdays, anniversaries, and successfully-delivered subpoenas. Reservations are recommended.
- Our dishes came out in no time at all, and everything was superbly presented. The goat-cheese salad was amazing: not too much dressing, and all of the ingredients tended to stand out nicely. – Alanna, Restaurantica
- The service was impeccable. The food Fantastic [sic] and the atmosphere was divine. – DrM, Restaurantica
