Where to eat near the DCU Center?

Going to a concert at the DCU center in Worcester on a Monday Night looking to have a great meal prior to the show. Will consider all types of cuisine. Any help would be great.

    Most of Worcester's great foods are not within walking distance. I would suggest O'connors on Rt 12 in W Boylston, Mikaku or Lazio on 20 in Northboro, Baba, El Basha,Da Lat or Haiku on Park. El Basha on Belmont. The Sole for fish or Boynton for pizza on Highland, and of course One Love on Main. I like the Chop House on Shrewsbury and love Mac's Diner but I don't think Mac's is open mondays. I'm sure I'm forgetting someone.

      Brew City over by the Chop house is solid bar food fare LARGE portions and a bizzillion different beers.

      Heard Via was really good but haven't been there. Chop House didn't thrill me for the $$, same with Sole Proprietor.

        It's true, there is just nothing really good within walking distance of the DCU center. However, there are plenty of great places to eat in Worcester. What do you consider great? Are you looking for upscale? Downscale and ethnic? Funky and hip?

          My guess is that if you haven't made reservations by this point for NYE, then most of the top restaurants are already booked (Sole Proprietor, Haiku, Chop House, etc). There are numerous ethnic cuisines (besides Chinese) that are more than likely ready to serve you some great food that night, so why not try one? My first suggestion would be to go for some Vietnamese in the city, with it's large Vietnamese population there are a good number of restaurants to choose from but see what works for you and I'd make sure to CALL FIRST in case they are booked solid too! Check out this thread for some ideas:

            I think he said A Monday, not this Monday. I thought the same thing the first time I read his post. :)
