THE SOLE PROPRIETOR

WORCESTER HAS MANY LANDMARKS. ONLY ONE SERVES FISH.

For nearly 40 years, people have been coming to The Sole Proprietor from near and far. The number one reason? The food is always fresh and always delicious. But there’s more to the Sole than fabulous food. This is a place where you feel welcomed the minute you walk through the door. On one side you’ll find an elegant yet intimate dining area. On the other, you’ll see a bar that attracts everyone from young professionals to local politicians to neighborhood residents. It’s a place to see and be seen, but it’s also a great choice for a romantic dinner or a laid-back evening with the family.

A MENU AS FRESH AS THE SEAFOOD

Here’s a little secret: if you really want your fish to be fresh, don’t cut it until just before you cook it. That’s what we mean by “freshness cut to order”. It was our policy on Day One, and it still is today. But it’s only one of the things that sets us apart from other fish restaurants.

At The Sole Proprietor, we specialize in top-quality, locally sourced seafood such as haddock, scallops, swordfish, tuna and bluefish. Then we prepare it using our special recipes. You’ll find all the classics here as well as seasonal dishes and up-to-the-moment inspirations. And you’ll find many choices beyond fish, including local artisan cheeses, meat and produce prepared in a range of delightful ways.

GREAT WINES, GREAT SERVICE

We’re proud of our extensive wine list. But we’re not the only ones. The Sole has earned Wine Spectator’s prestigious “Award of Excellence” – not once, but every year since 2001. We’re equally proud of our outstanding waitstaff. Every member is thoroughly trained to help you with menu and wine choices. Their hospitality will make you feel welcome – whether it’s your first visit or your fiftieth.
