Leonardo DiCaprio’s “incognito” appearance at Sunday brunch at Keith McNally’s French cafe Balthazar did not deceive anyone.
The audacious restaurateur, who made news last month for labeling James Corden a nasty customer, took to Instagram to reveal the brunch report from his renowned New York City cafe, in which a staff member recounted Leonardo DiCaprio’s surprise arrival, which left other patrons “starstruck.”
“One of the highlights of today was when Leonardo DiCaprio walked in as a walk-in soon after brunch service was complete,” the staffer stated. His agent checked him in at the entrance, and I seated him and his companion at table 61 for the transfer.
According to the allegation, the 48-year-old “Wolf of Wall Street” actor arrived “in incognito” wearing a mask and a baseball cap.
“Despite his disguise, he was easily identifiable. Especially by star-struck guests,” stated the employee.

Even though the Balthazar staff wanted to offer Oscar winner Leonardo DiCaprio VIP treatment, they were ordered by McNally, 71, to treat him like any other visitor.
“Some of the employees, including myself (I’m embarrassed to admit it! ), wanted to do something VERY SPECIAL for Leonardo, but you were determined that we do Nothing, so we didn’t. Which is somewhat unfortunate, but you’re the boss. (FOR NOW!) “I was kidding!” the employee concluded.
It is unknown with whom DiCaprio dined, and a Balthazar representative did not immediately answer to Page Six’s request for comment.
Prior to this, Leonardo DiCaprio and Gigi Hadid had a date night.

After parting up with longtime girlfriend Camila Morrone, Leonardo DiCaprio returned to the dating scene in August, only one month after the model turned 25. He is notorious for ending his relationships with women once they reach the 25-year mark.
But his probable flirtation with Gigi, who shares a 2-year-old daughter with ex-boyfriend Zayn Malik, indicates that his run of dating women younger than 25 may finally be ended.
