The Sole Proprietor has been named Worcester's best seafood restaurant annually in local reader polls for more than 30 years running. It has also been named one of the top 10 seafood restaurants in the country — an especially rare distinction for a restaurant located in a city the size of Worcester.
Such accolades don't just happen. It takes a long-standing emphasis on quality in everything from the decor of the restaurant to the service and, of course, the food.
The Sole has developed an atmosphere all its own, thanks in large part to the work of noted restaurant designer Peter Niemitz. You'll feel welcomed the minute you walk through the door. On one side you'll find an elegant but intimate dining area. On the other, you'll see a bar that attracts everyone from business executives to local politicians to neighborhood residents.
The menu is as fresh as the seafood and features locally sourced seafood such as haddock, scallops, swordfish, tuna and bluefish, as well as seasonal dishes and traditional favorites. All fish is bought daily and is cut to order, because it's a simple fact that the fresher the fish, the better it tastes.
Wine is essential to the dining experience at The Sole and its staff is trained to help guests choose the perfect wine pairing. The restaurant has received Wine Spectator's "Award of Excellence" every year since 2001.
