City Bar & Grille
395 Chandler St.
City Bar & Grille has recently opened in the former Caffe Espresso Trattoria spot.
Despite the down-home name, the food is on the higher end of tavern food. (Executive chef Al Soto previously worked at Troquet on South in Boston, according to telegram.com.) Look for the likes of streak frites, short rib with root vegetables and a roasted beet salad. Craft cocktails are the speciality of the bar.
Yelp users are generally positive about City Bar & Grille, which currently holds four stars out of seven reviews on the site.
Yelper Tina V., who reviewed City Bar & Grille on March 10, wrote, "All of the ingredients are locally sourced. We tried all four cocktails on brunch list and they all were delicious."
City Bar & Grille is open from 5 p.m.–10 p.m. on Tuesday-Thursday, 5 p.m.–11 p.m. on Friday, 4 p.m.–11 p.m. on Saturday, and 10 a.m.–3 p.m. and 5 p.m.–9:30 p.m. on Sunday. (It's closed on Monday.)
Revolution Pie and Pint
50 Franklin St.
Revolution Pie and Pint is a bar and pizza joint.
Located in the Bancroft Hotel, it offers build-your-own pizzas with four kinds of sauce, seven cheese options and countless meats and veggies. Or, go with a house speciality pie, like The Clark (fig sauce, crispy prosciutto, brandy figs, goat cheese) or The Becker (buffalo sauce, mozzarella, roasted chicken, red onion, chives). Choose from a long list of craft brews, from lighter wheats and pilsners, to stouts, IPAs and sour beers.
Yelp users are still warming up to Revolution Pie and Pint, which currently holds three stars out of 14 reviews on the site.
Yelper Eric D., who reviewed Revolution Pie and Pint on February 10, wrote, "We ordered The Becker which was similar to a buffalo chicken pizza. It was on the tangy side. We also placed an order of the Worcester State which was similar to a Hawaiian pizza. It was pretty tasty as well."
Revolution Pie and Pint is open from 11 a.m.–11 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Sunday and 11 a.m.–midnight on Thursday-Saturday.
Beer Garden Worcester
64 Franklin St.
Beer Garden Worcester is a beer bar and traditional American spot, now re-opened after a winter in hibernation.
Its outdoor picnic tables, fireplaces and TVs are back. So are its 36 craft beers on tap, and the elevated pub-style menu of burgers, sausages and snacks. Look for live music and comedy acts, as well.
Yelper David S., who was one of the first users to visit Beer Garden Worcester on October 21, wrote, "The beer is good and I was quite impressed by the beer selection."
Beer Garden Worcester is open from 3 p.m.–11 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday, noon–midnight on Friday and Saturday, and noon–11 p.m. on Sunday. (It's closed on Monday and Tuesday.)
