Made up of a team of culinary creatives, Niche Hospitality Group has carved out four hubs of gourmet extravagance in the greater Worcester area. Yet apart from belonging to the same parent umbrella, the restaurants show few commonalities. Each outpost champions its own distinctive vibe and cuisine, from Spanish tapas and modern Mexican dishes to classic American seafood and pizzas.
At Bocado, chefs showcase imported Spanish meats and cheeses in 40 hot and cold tapas, which favor complex flavor pairings such as bacon-wrapped scallops with white-truffle honey. Wines from an exclusively Spanish list and in-house sangria complement the small bites. While guests delve into the signature paella, they lounge amid rustic brick walls, curvy leather upholstery, and lighting as sultry and alluring as a chocolate sculpture of Marilyn Monroe.
The Citizen Wine Bar / The People's Kitchen / Still & Stir
The Citizen Wine Bar introduces newcomers to the finer things in life. There, a vast selection of wine, cheese, and chocolate combine and intermingle to awaken taste buds and deepen appreciation. In the same building, The People’s Kitchen anchors that triumvirate with a menu of house-butchered and dry-aged steaks, and Still & Stir’s mixologists invite visitors to wind down with old-fashioned cocktails served until 2 a.m.
Mezcal Tequila Cantina
Chefs at Mezcal don’t shy away from bold flavors. To wit: they whip up six globally inspired varieties of guacamole by hand, and toss southwestern shrimp scampi with tequila-butter sauce and pickled jalapeño. Dishes from Mexico and the southwestern United States combine with a checklist of aged tequilas to fuel long conversations and marathon sessions of Truth or Dare.
Rye & Thyme American Tavern
Situated in the 120-year-old historic Wood Block Building, Rye and Thyme has all the trappings of a classic American tavern. It’s a fitting locale for devouring wood-fired steaks, pizzas, and seafood, whose smoky flavors stand up to the bourbons and ryes that dominate the drinks menu.
Named after the owner's pup, Elvis's Hot Dog Palace lets customers choose from regionally inspired dogs such as the Classic Chicago with celery salt, and the Coney Island topped with housemade chili and the screams from the roller coaster. Customers also can order burgers, which pair well with hand-cut fries.
Situated along the Nashua River inside the 4,000 square-foot Devens community, The Devens Grill welcomes neighbors and visitors alike to stop in for a hearty meal of classic American fare. Chefs assemble steak-tip and oriental chicken salads, BLT sandwiches, and half-pound burgers during lunch. And at dinner, they up the ante by searing New York strip steaks and grilling fresh Atlantic salmon over an open flame. Patrons can enjoy their meals, including Sunday morning breakfast, inside the casual dining room or outside on the patio, where birds tap-dance for crumbs.

The dough wizards at Papa John's hand toss circular masterpieces with original and thin crusts made from high-protein flour to support warm bouquets of toppings. Hand-cut produce crowns all of Papa John's pizzas, mingling with the sun-soaked sweetness of sauce made from fresh, California-grown tomatoes. By adhering to its brand promise of "better ingredients, better pizza," Papa John's grew from a back-tavern pizzeria into more than 3,500 restaurants within three decades' time, or the amount of time it takes to grow a single pizzeria from a small seed.
No one ever leaves Piccolino's Restaurant with an empty stomach. Or even a half-empty stomach, for that matter. This is because in addition to a menu of hearty pizzas, grinders, and classic Italian entrees, the family sports bar offers free popcorn to kids and adults alike. Patrons pop buttery kernels into their mouths as they watch sports games on four big-screen TVs, or take in the sounds of live music on Thursdays and Saturdays. But the main attraction is the fresh-from-the-oven food, such as homemade meat lover's pizza, foot-long sausage grinders, a selection of steaks and seafood, and eggplant parmesan smothered in homemade marinara sauce.
