Restaurant review: The Paramount (Southie)

The Paramount South BostonThe 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.

The Paramount South BostonI 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.The Paramount South BostonIn 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”.

Paramount SouthieThe Paramount South Boston is located at 667 East Broadway and is open 7-days a week.  They open at 8:00 a.m. and close at 10:00 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11:00 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

  1. HUGE fan of their orange juice. Always fresh squeezed. Blueberry pancakes with a side of bacon and some OJ. Can’t beat it.
