We started our meal with a Pickle Bowl so was a mix of jalapeños, pears and fennel. No there were not traditional cucumber pickles so clearly a matter of taste.

Excellent beer selections, local beers and international. Great regional cheese plate, and very good menu options, I had pork belly cooked in local beer, also good looking bone marrow plate, and the cheese plate selections are fantastic.

4 of us had dinner here on a Saturday night at 5:00 and it was already packed. We had reservations and said 1 child not noting his age. We didnt realize they have no high chairs and that it wasn't really kid friendly. Our 12 month old had to sit on an "L" shaped bench which made it difficult to... More

The food was lacking in flavor & our all of our hot food was cold. We had the charcuterie platter, Macaroni & Cheese, Fish sandwich & Polenta w/ veggies.... More

My daughter and I met a friend at the WAM, mostly to take in the cat art and catiary, which was due to be dismantled the following week. Being unfamiliar with Worcester and having scored a great parking spot right in front of the museum, we decided to pick a place within walking distance to have snacks before heading back... More

This is not your typical restaurant. They have a unique selection of food and a great beer selection. Everything I have tried here has been amazing and incomparable to anything I've ever tried before.

The ambiance is bistro like..small and tight. The staff is very friendly and the choices and flavors are very good. Nice craft selection.
