Restaurants

In addition to the housing and jobs our team has created in Worcester, our ownership team has interest in two local restaurants with Worcester-loving, community based ties that also provide jobs and wonderful amenities for the city:

deadhorse hill is a seasonal American restaurant and daytime cafe located on main street in downtown Worcester. A restaurant inspired by the New England landscape, they rely on the hard working farmers throughout the northeast and the fishermen along the coast to provide the best possible food at the table. deadhorse is located in what used to be the first floor of the ‘Bay State House’ hotel which served as the headquarters for the Worcester Automobile Club, who held the Dead Horse Hill Climb from 1905-1911. The hotel itself was a prominent location for social, political, and business meetings, likely in part due to their world class restaurant.

simjang is a fried chicken & ramen joint on the famed restaurant row on Shrewsbury Street in Worcester. They support local farms, breweries and business that share their ideals on sustainable agriculture, reducing waste, and honoring the food we serve. simjang cooks their own version of Korean cuisine, which is rich in tradition and heritage, with respect and admiration.
