Omni Parker House, Boston MA

The Parker House in Boston is famous for many things- John Wilkes Booth stayed here in the months before Lincoln’s assassination and Charles Dickens lived here for a time (you can see his room key in a display case in the lobby)-but it is most famous for two culinary achievements, the Parker House roll and the Boston Cream pie, both of which are still served here. The rolls are light, hot, and deliciously yeasty, clearly made to be the perfect companion to real butter! If you want to take some with you next time you are in Boston, just walk through the elegant lobby with it’s carved wood and gold accents to the host of the Parker House restaurant and he will sell you a box (or two) of hot Parker House rolls. I am sure that when you feel the warmth of those golden rolls exuding their yeasty goodness, you will stop just outside and sample this tasty bit of history for yourself!
