The District is a family-friendly restaurant featuring American pub-style food with a wood-fired twist. We’re conveniently located in the well-known Canal District of Worcester, Massachusetts, walkable to Polar Park and the Worcester Ice Center.
The District Wood Fired Kitchen’s walls were once home to what was known as the “Compass Tavern” in Worcester’s Canal District. In 2022, the location’s doors opened to a reimagined family friendly restaurant under the same ownership team as its sister restaurant, Off The Rails. Born from inspiration to create a venue that brings neighbors, families (and their dogs!) together, owners Cliff Rucker, Chris Besaw, and Chef Rick Araujo promise a meal at The District is always going to be fun, no matter who you come with.
