The Fix Burger Bar

Get your burger fix at The Fix

Hamburgers should be a sure-fire smash addition to the Niche Group’s hegemony over Worcester dining. In recent years, America’s been waking up to the realization that the major burger chains no longer serve up meals very fast nor very cheap. What they do seem to offer are expensive marketing […]

Lakeside Bar & Grille

At its loftier reaches, our dining universe contains restaurants of heroic scale presenting landmark cuisine; establishments intent on leaving their mark on mankind. They can be exciting to visit for interesting spaces and provocative dining. Then, at the lower end of the spectrum, there’s the fast-food genre, whose industrialized fare I strive to avoid.
Wedged between […]

By Kerry Cyganiewicz

Carmella’s Italian Kitchen

By Benjamin McNeil
If you’ve ever watched Gordon Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares, you know that dining establishments crumble when owners fail to retain quality employees, menus become overcomplicated and unfocused, and food quality suffers. Truth is, most restaurants close after being open just five years, and blond f-bombing Brits usually aren’t around to play savior. That makes […]

Gumbo is closed.

The Canal District’s Gumbo is closed and will reopen the first week of February as the Canal Bar & Grille. Owner Nick Vapiano, who also owns Holden’s Flip Flops, will keep a great many of Gumbo’s favorites ~ including the raw bar, jambalaya, blackened steaks and ettouffee ~ but he’s also expanding the menu, so […]

Il Forno

By Bernie Whitmore
 

We’re all familiar with the well-worn script played out across America all too often: a McDonalds opens in a quaint little town and with its seemingly inescapable greasy magnetism soon becomes THE place to eat out. But then the townspeople awaken from this French-fry induced delirium, decide they’ve tired of McEverything, and […]

The Boston Globe recently featured Worcester’s Brew City for having some of the best hamburgers in New England. They paid particular attention to the Piedmonte Burger, calling it a “model of sophistication” with its fresh mozzarella, sliced tomato and a basil pesto dressing. Check it out.

Food Trends

By Tine Roycroft, Lynn N. Capri, and Josh Lyford
Each year, there are trends in dining ~ just like those in fashion, technology, films, etc. ~ that are a logical progression from the year before ~ like when we saw tapas become popular at a few select specialty restaurants before the trend caught on like […]

Overtime Tap Fantasy Bar and Grille

By Katelyn Faye Winters
Located at 50 Front St. in Worcester, the new Overtime Tap Fantasy Bar and Grille may sound like “just” another sports bar, but owners Dave LeDoux, Matt Bousquet, and Greg Takacs run more than your typical beer-and-peanuts sports lounge.
Head chef Ian Hickey designed a menu well beyond typical bar-food fare; while staples […]

The Registry Restaurant has embraced its connection with Worcester’s first Registry of Motor Vehicles ~ the restaurant occupies the RMV’s former home, hence its name ~ by decorating the dining room in mid-twentieth century automobile culture.

Verona Grille

By Bernie Whitmore
Let’s face it, first impressions are critical. And it didn’t take long for me to form a couple about Verona Grille. First, their rambling old wood frame building and location on Route 70 reminded me of a roadhouse from the bygone noir era ~ just a bit outside of town where […]

By Rachel Shuster
Dinky’s Blue Belle Diner, a family run business, has come a long way from its start in 1992. Owner Bruce Trotto says the joint, which began as Dinky’s Dogs and Cones, started serving hot dogs and ice cream. Named for its “modes” appearance when founded, Trotto says, […]

From the moment I heard Romaine’s of Northborough was opening a barbecue place on Harding Street, I had a feeling something big was in store for dining in Worcester. After all, their undisputed reputation for superior quality and service has long anchored Romaine’s at the top of […]

Brew City Grill & Brew House

By Bernie Whitmore
104 Shrewsbury Street, Worcester
(508) 752-3862
www.brew-city.com
In a city known for its independently owned restaurants, Brew City carved out their own niche and has enjoyed it for more years than most places hope to stay in business. I reckon there’s more than luck involved in this; they’ve never watered down their original commitment to […]

Something good has been happening to sports bar food and JJ’s seems to be setting the trend. True, they have all the sports bar excitement you’d expect, starting with plenty of video. From my booth, deep in their cavernous great-room, I […]
