For the past year all of my friends who live downtown have been telling me I need to try the Paramount in Beacon Hill for brunch. Though I am certainly interested and would love to check it out, I actually wound up trying the Paramount's new, second location in South Boston first!
My cousin, his wife and their adorable 14 month old baby girl invited me to Southie for the day two weeks ago and we decided to take advantage of the gorgeous, sunny weather and walk to brunch. They suggested the Paramount (which arrived in Southie a few months ago) and I was more than happy to give it a whirl.
You can spot the Paramount on Broadway by it's huge front windows which are open to the street.
We got super lucky and just as we were ready to sit, a group got up from the table right in the front window. We got the star table!
Once we were settled into our fabulous table it was time to dig in! My cousin ordered the chocolate chip pancakes. He said the stack was perfect and fluffy and that they weren't overly buttered.
The vibe at the Paramount was very relaxed and the servers never pressured us to hurry or give up our table. Though the restaurant was always full, it never felt loud or crowded. I would absolutely take the trip back to Southie any weekend to have this food again.
On our way out I noticed these two historical Boston pictures of the Speedo run. I love that they incorporated these quirky pieces of Boston memorabilia.
Paramount in Southie? What did you think?
