You don’t have to go far to experience Boston’s finest dining. Featured in USA Today as one of Zagat's Top 15 Most Iconic Restaurants in America for 2013 and one of Zagat's 10 Unexpectedly Romantic Restaurants in Boston, our award-winning restaurant is the birthplace of the 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.”
Parker’s Restaurant just won “Best Chowder” at the 2019 Boston Chowderfest during the 38th Annual Boston Harborfest over 4th of July!
Parker's Restaurant and the Omni Parker House are being featured on A Taste of History on PBS. Check out a sneak peek below!
History of Parker's Restaurant
Since the late 1800's, this venerable restaurant has built quite a prominent culinary legacy, from hiring arguably the first celebrity French Chef in America, Chef Anézin in 1865, to launching the culinary careers of Emeril Lagasse, Lydia Shire and Jasper White. 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 1940's during the period of the Pearl Harbor invasion.
Although Chef Tice has traveled throughout much of Europe and the United States, many elements of his cooking reflect his New England roots. Chef Tice prefers to cook with local, fresh ingredients that complement his environs and considers it an obligation to support local artisans from the place he calls home. This recipe was inspired by the use of New England products: Northeast family farms beef, native produce, Vermont cheddar cheese and freshly baked brioche.
