Sonoma named most romantic restaurant in region


WORCESTER _ On Thursday, November 8, the region’s exclusive DiRōNA awarded fine dining restaurant, Sonoma, was voted Best Romantic Dining in The Landmark’s Readers’ Choice Awards, representing the very best Central Massachusetts has to offer. The award follows Sonoma’s one year anniversary under its new ownership at the Beechwood Hotel located at 363 Plantation Street.

Sonoma has long been regarded as one of the Northeast’s premier destinations for special occasion dining and was recognized as one of OpenTable’s Top 100 Most Romantic Restaurants in America and Top 100 Restaurants in the USA.

Offering guests a highly acclaimed romantic setting for an intimate dining experience, the restaurant features global farm-to-table cuisine made with ingredients locally sourced from farms throughout Massachusetts and parts of New England. Sonoma’s extensive and prized West Coast wine list emphasizes the continuously evolving seasonal menu and pre fixe holiday dinners that invite the community to enjoy a relaxed occasion with loved ones.

“We are grateful to the Landmark readers and thrilled that our top-rated restaurant, Sonoma, was recognized with this special designation,” said Dr. Charles Birbara, owner of Sonoma and the Beechwood Hotel. “We are deeply committed to offering only the finest quality food prepared with the extraordinary creativity of our culinary team and implemented with the best practices in food service. We hope Sonoma will continue to be top of mind for Valentine’s Day.”

The Patio at Sonoma is the heart of al fresco entertainment during warmer months and hosts the region’s most popular local artists like Dale LePage and the Manhattans, the Russo Brothers Jazz Quintet, Mitch Chakour, and others at its event pavilion. This summer, the restaurant welcomed blues performer Big Jon Short during its Sam Adams Revolution Barbeque event series, which featured a smokehouse spin on Sonoma favorites and newly released craft beer.

This recognition by the Landmark illuminates Sonoma as a consistently top-rated romantic restaurant noted for excellence.
