deadhorse hill is a seasonal american restaurant located on main street in downtown Worcester. A restaurant inspired by the New England landscape. We rely on the hard working farmers throughout the northeast and the fishermen along the coast to provide the best possible food at the table.
Our warm hospitality and comforting service led by Julia Auger compliment the rustic elegance of our chef Jared Forman. Together, our kitchen and service teams provide a unique experience driven by passion.
To mirror our dedication to the hands that bring our ingredients into the kitchen, a craft cocktail program designed to accompany the season using local ingredients and small batch spirits is lead by bar director Derek Grimm. At the table Julia provides a selection of naturally made wines of smaller grower producers from around the world, capturing the landscape of a farm and the history of a place.
In the evening the dining room offers an à la carte and chefs tasting menu that speaks of the season, varying based on the availability of ingredients.
We are 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.
