Parker's Restaurant


Parker's Restaurant inside the historic Omni Parker House Hotel is legendary for a few reasons: it invented Boston cream pie and Parker House rolls, Emeril Lagasse cooked here (bam!), Malcolm X was a busboy here in the 1940s, and JFK proposed to Jackie at Table 40. If the sheer romance of that last tidbit isn't enough to get you through the door, you're either heartless, or the grand architecture and upscale surf and turf plates like butter poached lobster, roasted quail, filet mignon, and baked Boston schrod (a staple since 1906) will do the trick.
