It seems that the second Fall hits we all want soup, a nice warm drink and comforting food. Throughout the fall and winter in New England the flavors go between pumpkin to maple to peppermint to sage and any other myriad of seasonal combinations you want to make. In dining out, many restaurants come up with a fall/winter menu that complement the flavors of the season and this makes it super exciting for me as a food writer/blogger because I love trying new ways the flavors can be incorporated into new dishes.
What makes the Canalway Cultural District a dining destination? The history in Lowell is rich and along with eating a great meal you can take in some of the surrounding sites such as the Whistler House Museum of Art, The New England Quilt Museum or the National Streetcar Museum. Because Lowell is a walkable city the restaurants and things to do around them make for a great day outing or a full weekend trip.
Some great new restaurants have opened up recently and with this in mind I wanted to share a dining guide of my favorite spots (both new and old) to check out in Downtown Lowell.
Cobblestones of Lowell Historic restaurant, that brings American classics to life while also providing modern takes on beloved dishes. 1981 Ramen Bar Lowell’s only Ramen spot, their big bowls of savory broth, noodles & toppings, great drinks & fun atmosphere make for a great dining experience.
Fabianos Pizzeria & Café Not just a pizzeria, they take American classics like pizza, burgers, pasta and more to a different level by incorporating Peruvian flavors. Mandarin Asian Bistro Delicious sushi, as well as hot dishes make this spot ideal for when you can’t make up your mind- they also have great drinks and live music on the weekends.
El Potro Mexican Bar & Grill Fresh, delicious Mexican food in a welcoming environment. Everyone is friendly and there is always something yummy to eat. Lowell Burger Company New to the food scene in Lowell, LBC takes burgers and makes them exciting- also that special sauce is to die for!
Fuse Bistro This delightful restaurant makes delicious, unique dishes while incorporating local flavors. Their drinks are interesting, delicious and the atmosphere is always warm. Warp & Weft International comfort food is what this restaurant strives to do and it does it, well. With a complete redesign of their restaurant it makes this the new go-to.
It was so wonderful collaborating with LikeLowell on this and stay tuned for a full dining guide (with some extra treats) that they will make available soon!
Life as a Maven wishing you a happy and merry season!
