EatingWorcester became a mildly popular restaurant blog out of the city. In truth, it may have been the only blog exclusive to restaurants & dining. Many of my posts were reviled for not being newspaper quality, with one or two commenters telling me that their editors at the T&G would have a field day with them. Well, such is life, while I wouldn’t turn away a T&G gig, the most interesting thing coming out of the T&G is in the obituaries sections (also this is my new favorite website: isthereanythinggoodintodaystandg.info). But, aside from the criticism, trolling (love you Will W.W.), and also the praise, the real reason I’ve stopped publishing on E.W., is that I was picked up for reviews for a real publication last year. You can read them in Worcester’s #1 alternative weekly newspaper, but they’re under a crazy pseudonym that nobody will ever guess.
One of EatingWorcester’s favorite pizza and sandwich joints, Corner Grill, is offering a late night menu for pick-up only. Featuring their best pizzas, Corner Grill, located near the Pleasant St / Richmond Ave / St. Elmo intersection, will now be open until 3am on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. Late night used to be reduced to Domino’s and Fresh Way Pizza, but now you’ve got some of the best specialty pies in the city.
Here is their late night menu, and in full size.
PETA recently named Worcester the 7th most vegan-friendly city in the US. This comes after a number of menus have added either vegan or vegetarian offerings around the city. While I am definitely a meat lover, congrats to the city for being recognized for … something.
“Worcester residents should be proud that their hometown is on the cutting edge of healthy cuisine that is Earth- and animal-friendly,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “Because factory-farmed animals are subjected to intensive confinement and cruel conditions, more and more people are demanding meat- and dairy-free dining options.”
Among the menu standouts at Belmont Vegetarian are the spaghetti and veggie balls, the macaroni and soy cheese, and the barbecue “chicken” and rice. At Nancy Chang, compassionate foodies have their choice of more than 50 vegan menu items, including the Sesame Vegan Chicken, the Mango Vegan Chicken, and the Sizzling Vegan Shrimp With Japanese Teppanyaki Sauce. And after one bite of Loving Hut’s Kung Pao Wow–soy chicken, baby corn, carrots, snow peas, bamboo, water chestnuts, onions, bell peppers, celery, cucumbers, and cashew nuts–diners will know that they’ll be coming back.
