Parker House Rolls

The Omni Parker House features three dining options, each with a unique ambiance carrying on the culinary heritage. Both the Boston Cream Pie and delectable Parker House rolls were created on property in the 19th century, much to the delight of guests. The Boston Cream Pie, the custard-filled cake with chocolate frosting, got its start at Parker’s Restaurant in 1856 and is now the official state dessert of Massachusetts. The soft, buttery Parker House Rolls, dubbed “America’s first soft dinner roll,” was a top secret recipe until 1933 when U.S. President Franklin Roosevelt requested they be served at a White House Dinner. Since then, the property has welcomed guests for exquisite cuisine that is simply unforgettable.

Parker’s Restaurant
Guests won’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, Omni Parker House’s award-winning restaurant is the birthplace of the Boston Cream Pie, Parker House Rolls, and Boston Scrod. Parker’s Restaurant celebrates nostalgic cuisine with classic New England fare. 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 and the Omni Parker House are being featured on A Taste of History on PBS.
