The name Omni Parker House evokes a rich storied history that attracted the likes of Emerson, Thoreau, Hawthorne, Longfellow and Charles Dickens. The city’s infamous Boston cream pie was invented here in the ovens at Parker’s, along with its renowned Parker House rolls, but historians flock to the dining room where local and national politicians like John F. Kennedy and Bill Clinton have all eaten.
Stop in the longest continuously operating hotel for some of the best New England seafood in town, including Wellfleet oysters and Boston baked scrod (which they have been serving up since 1906). Legend has it the restaurant originated the term scrod as well. Two cultural icons also spent time on the staff here – Ho Chi Minh served as a baker and Malcom Little – a.k.a. Malcolm X – was a busboy. The food is just as good now as it was then. Click here for more information.
