Places to Eat around the regatta
Advisor recommends some restaurants that the locals agree with. Restaurants.com
has a more comprehensive list, but we haven't eaten at most of these
places, so you're on your own. For feeding large groups, we
recommend The Mill City Brewery.
In close proximity to each other in downtown Lowell, you'll find several
good restaurants and bars. Smaller crowds can fit nicely
at the Café Paradiso (Italian) downtown. Mambo Grill for Mexican, Green
Bamboo for cheap Chinese eats are also both recommended. La Boniche is a finer restaurant, but only if
your coach or parent is picking up the tab.
