Looking to take my MIL somewhere good for her Bday on Sunday. Both my hubby and I are pretty serious foodies and the in-laws are reasonably adventurous. We'd like to go somewhere in the Hamilton/Burlington/Oakville area with a nice atmosphere and excellent food. Not a fan of the traditional steak house-type repertoire nor Italian.
Will not consider the following b/c either we were underwhelmed or have eaten there too recently:
Anyone tried Rousseau and liked it recently? I want to know it's worth it to spend $35 per entree. Any other recs? I looked at the menu for Blacktree in Oakville - but it seemed overly trendy and over-priced. Anyone tried Incognito in Hamilton? http://www.goldbook.ca/goldbook/hamil...
Any good Portuguese besides Wild Orchid?
