The Paramount in Beacon Hill has been serving delicious meals since 1937. In February 2012 they opened a second location in South Boston. The “new” location has a similar layout, executive chef, hours and menu. The casual dining option nicely compliments the personality of Southie, offering very good, affordable meals in a comfortable setting.
While you might want to try lunch or dinner at The Paramount, we recently indulged in breakfast, which is available 7-days a week starting at 8:00 a.m. with plates reasonably priced from $5-$9. Although the helpful staff is quick to clean, there is no table service so when you enter the restaurant walk up to the kitchen counter to place your order.
I ordered huevos rancheros $9; two fried eggs, homemade salsa, sliced avocado, with three grilled corn tortilla. The breakfast was satisfying but the salsa lacked any spice (then again I ordered this in Southie where many think mustard is spicy). Sergio ordered a breakfast sandwich for $6 which (like my plate) came with a generous scoop of breakfast potatoes that are crispy on the outside and nicely salted.In the name of ‘research’ we also ordered a plate of blueberry pancakes $8.50. The large stack of three pancakes are served with a liberal dollop of butter and a healthy sprinkling of confectioners sugar. Two words describe these pancakes, “mmm-mmm good”.
