Sat & Mon dinner only, open from 6pm
Tue-Fri, Lunch: 11:30am-2pm
Over the following ten years, the restaurant has evolved in true brasserie fashion,
distinguishing itself as one of Hamilton’s
favourite lunch and dinner¬time spots.
Lively, reasonably priced and decorated
with framed photos of long-time servers
and chefs, Bolero is undoubtedly a neighborhood staple.
Led by Chef Jonny and Chef Jessica, the hardworking kitchen team
crafts creative, unpretentious dishes
that in¬corporate both locally grown
produce as well as unusual ingredients such as offal, lambs tongue,
veal sweetbreads and wasabi crème
fraiche. The fluid menu changes weekly, but invariably focuses on simple,
unique food with maximum character
and minimum fuss. Bolero is known
for its daring flavour combinations
that don’t play by the rules and aren’t
afraid to stand out. It’s this commitment
to bold (and fleeting) dishes that sets
the restaurant apart and keeps loyal
patrons returning for more.
Not sure what to order? The
knowledgeable wait staff is involved
in weekly menu tastings and is happy
to recommend starters and entrees to
satisfy your every hankering. Whether
it’s a lamb belly slider, candied parsnip
risotto, squid ink linguine or poutine,
Bolero loves to impress. Even the airy
balcony seating overlooking Front
Street and Hamilton Harbour is designed to take your breath away.
During the week, Bolero hums with
the chatter of working professionals.
The small, cozy bar is a fine place to
strike up a conversation and down one
or two draft ‘old style’ beers. The dynamic, downright awesome bartenders
can also hook you up with a hand-crafted cocktail- try their lemon basil mojito
or their classic Old ‘N’ Stormy, made
with Gosling’s Old Family Reserve, fresh
ginger and lime. Be sure to ask about
their latest selection of vino. As you
might expect, not even the wine list
stays the same for very long!
