You gotta eat.

Might as well do it right.

Not in terms of limiting portion sizes, buttering broccoli instead of bread, or choosing seltzer over sangria — though those are perfectly fine moves for the person sitting across from you.

We’re talking about enjoying food that’s prepared, and presented, with care.

When it comes to restaurants in Worcester, that’s exactly what we get: Choice upon choice of tantalizing places to dine, with scrumptious and sometimes imaginative menu items.

Yes, right here in Worcester we have world-class and affordable — you can even park there probably — and wonderful places to eat.

How do we know? We read it in The Boston Globe.

We knew already, of course. Seeded by standouts such as the longtime Sole Proprietor on Highland Street — which for some four decades has set a high standard for ambiance, taste and service — date-night, higher-end type restaurants have been rolling in.

And for as long as anyone can remember, residents’ appreciations for good food, friendly atmosphere and serious value have been satisfied by bustling diners, cheery family restaurants, chain places that are generally well-run, and local holes-in-the-wall.
