Dining in Lowell?

Was thinking of a quick "getaway"; Lowell seems to have this happening-artist-loft buzz and I was wondering if there were any decent restaurants up there serving dinner.

    Hey, nice name! ;-b

    I hear that the Athenian Corner has excellent Greek food, but I still haven't been there yet.

        Please look on the New England board. A search for "Lowell" will turn up many recent discusions. "There's a lot to like about Lowell" as the city's tourism slogan says.

          Cambodian food!! Red Rose, Phnom Penh, Senmonorom..these are 3
          I like, but there is quite a good selection of the cuisine up

          And as already mentioned, do a search and you'll find previous
          comments/posts about Cambodian food in Lowell.

            I second Red Rose. Great Cambodian food, bizarre atmosphere (Cambodian karaoke on the TV sets) - try the beef luc lac.

            There is a lot to like about Lowell!!

            Try Fortunato's for dinner.

            Cafe Paradisio is great for coffee, desert and drinks!

            Also, the Old Court has great pub food.

            The Folk Festival in the summer is always a good time with lots of wonderful ethnic food

              In Lowell I love Athenian Corner...very good Greek food, with a very casual atmosphere...I heard they have belly dancing too, although I have yet to witness that.
              I also love La Boniche, for more upscale place. I have been there several times and have always had a good experience. Fortunado's and Cobblestones are also good choices.
