Special Lunch in Worcester

Meeting a dear friend for lunch in Worcester. Neither one of us is familiar with this city. Any suggestions for a quiet place where we can catch up with each other would be greatly appreciated.

    Ceres Bistro, in The Beechwood Hotel, is open at lunchtime. It's probably fairly quiet.

      But, how is the food? Have you eaten there? I am not just looking for quiet, but some great food!

        You didn't really mention food. ;)

        I haven't eaten there, but it's gotten good reviews. I think there's a farm-to-table concept and the interior is gorgeous.

      I have eaten at Ceres, and the food is very nice! Another good choice would be Via on Shrewsbury Street.

        Thanks everyone! I'll let you know where we end up eating and what the food was like.
