Contemporary American
We set out to use the choicest ingredients and craft them in a way that is both delicious and approachable at Ingredients-N-Craft. Creating a relaxed yet interesting dining experience that is rooted in bold flavor, shaped by scratch cooking, paired with hand crafted spirits and is enhanced by sociable and knowledgeable service. We incorporated any and all types of cuisines, ingredients and techniques that were available to us to create an excitingly dynamic menu that hopefully allows everyone to find a new favorite dish.
The space at INC was created to incorporate multiple design elements that offer an array of dining spaces and settings. The INC to-go is destined to those in a hurry who don't sacrifice flavor or freshness on that account! Our dining room, on the other hand offers guests a comfortable yet stylish setting where they can leisurely enjoy expertly crafted plates and libations.
Our harmonious aggregation of food, service, & decor will lead to a memorable experience!

Thanks to my wife for a Great find while traveling through New Brunswick. Saturday night (after Valentines) was busy and restaurant was very active, so understandable that servers were busy. Great collection of craft beer, bourbon, and cocktails. Food was creative (mozzarella spring rolls, fried brownies) and delicious (shrimp and grits) and server was very personable. Couldn’t get a seat, but “library” is great spot for drink pre/post dinner

I forgot to take pictures bummer. However, we enjoy coming here normally we sit at the bar, but it being Valentine's Day weekend and all I decided to treat HIM to a dinner, a "reserve Valentine's day". He had the shrimp and grits and I had the duck. Both delicious and I highly recommend. I would have enjoyed the paté and the duck hearts so try them out. The service is always great wheather you are sitting at the bar or in the dining room. DRINKS guys come on hands down ALWAYS amazing! if you seat at the bar you can really see how serious the bartenders are about each drink and quite honestly you really get "schooled" in the art of how you should drink bourbon " add a drop of this enhances the favor"...you will understand once you try...so go and enjoy.. oh and YOU WELCOME! ;)

Everything was excellent except for my husband’s meal which was one of specials. The description our server gave and how it was described on the menu was not what was delivered. That being said the rest of our group had excellent food!

I keep going back because the food is inventive and exquisitely prepared; the attention to cocktails is held to the same standard, the management and staff are always courteous and informative. It’s been my favorite restaurant for years now. From the first time we set foot in the restaurant to now, we’ve always been treated like friends.

Truly a special place.

Decent food prior to George Street Playhouse; typical pub/cocktail bar food pairings that were OK; nothing special but served the purpose; cocktails menu was significant but quality great place to grab a bite, date night etc.; not bad, but not exceptional

Excellent experience. The service was perfectly timed from start to finish. I had excellent Manhattan made exactly how I wanted it and I’m super picky. You could hear each other just fine. You forget that you’re in noisy New Brunswick even with the large windows. Not to mention it’s right next to the state theatre

One of the best meals we’ve had in a long time!
A large excellent salad and the “special “ root vegetable soup served nice and hot,started the meal. We had a great pasta with shrimp added and a different vegetable burger. The burger was made with slices of portobello mushrooms.
Very good service too for a busy, casual restaurant.

A very nice place. Bar seating in the front and dining room in the back. Menu consists of small plates and full size plates of creative bistro dishes. The chicken live pate was outstanding. Green curry pork tacos with kimchi slaw and house made Sriracha sauce were very delicious.

Staff accommodated my 4 friends and I for moving us from a reserved table to a high top bar area seating for more casual vibe. Floor manager and staff were extremely knowledgeable on cocktail and cross promoted new sister restaurant in Somerville called Salted Lime which we will all check out on our next girls get together. Food was yummy and orange cauliflower was delish! Great spot for exploring whiskey.

Best restaurant in New Brunswick and we have eaten at multiple ones. Food was great with a range of choices of food-type and size of each dish. We had an orchiette pasta dish, steak, and veggie burgers. Salads were fresh and nice-sized. Desserts were clever and good too: we each had the cookie in a cup. Servers were very friendly and let us sit and talk without pressuring us to leave.
