Categories: Fine Dining

One Of Downtown's Most Fabled Dining Experiences, Set Inside One Of The Country's Most Historic Hotels

You don’t have to go far to experience Boston’s finest dining. Featured in USA Today as "Zagat's Top 15 Most Iconic Restaurants in America" for 2013, the Omni Parker House's award-winning restaurant is the birthplace of Boston Cream Pie, Parker House rolls, and Boston Scrod. Parker’s restaurant offers guests a superb culinary experience and exceptional personal service.

The Waterford crystal chandeliers and the ornate hand carved woodwork of this Grand Dame restaurant serve as a reminder of the days when Charles Dickens, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and other literary greats dined here as members of the “Saturday Club.”

Since the late 1800’s, this venerable restaurant has built quite a prominent culinary legacy. From hiring the first celebrity French Chef in America--Chef Sanzian--in 1855, to launching Emeril Lagasse, Lydia Shire, and Jasper White, Parker's has witnessed some of the country's most celebrated culinary careers. Two cultural icons spent time on the Parker House staff: Vietnamese leader Ho Chi Minh served as a baker in the bakeshop from 1912-1913, and Malcolm X was a busboy in the early 1940s.
