Bootleggers Prohibition Pub replaces EVO, located on Chandler Street in Worcester. You enter through their “Secret Entrance” in the rear of the building, how fun! The restaurant interior has completely changed. It has a old, rustic feel with large wood beams dividing the restaurant and they added a large mahogany bar. The decor takes you back to an old 1930’s Speakeasy, complete with a glass of moonshine!
The menu has a collection from soup/salads, pasta to salmon, with great names like the “Gatsby.” I decided on, On the Wagon, Grilled Veggie Burger, fresh avocado, sweet onion, sunflower sprouts, Havarti cheese and Sriracha lime agave aioli, with a side of sautéed green beans. The veggie burger arrived and it was huge, I had to cut it in half just to pick it up because of all the generous toppings. The veggie burger seemed frozen not homemade which was disappointing, I was thankful for the delicious toppings that made up for the lack of flavor in the frozen patty. The green beans were fresh and plentiful and not overcooked.
Our waitstaff was friendly and quick with refilling our drinks. Our food came out fast as well considering the amount of people we had in our group.
I really enjoy the idea of a restaurant with a Speakeasy theme, from the secret entrance, wall decor and names of the beverages and food, it all came together. I will be returning to try some other food options and sit at the bar and enjoy some of their innovative cocktails.
