Known for its countless restaurants and diverse set of foodie residents, Worcester has for the past 10 months been given a glimpse into the culture of Southern hospitality through the flavorful and hearty dishes of Addie Lee’s Soul Food Restaurant, 596 Main St.  — a place many are calling a “home away from home.”

Addie Lee's Soul Food, at the corner of Main and Austin streets, opened last November.
