USA Today, Zagat Include Parker's Restaurant in Boston Among Most Iconic Restaurants in USA

A national daily newspaper and a popular restaurant guide have given their picks for the most iconic dining spots in the United States, and a high-end place in downtown Boston has made the list.

According to USA Today and Zagat, Parker's Restaurant within the Omni Parker House Hotel on School Street is one of 15 eateries picked as iconic spots, where "a famous dish, local cuisine, decor, service or history make an out-of-towner feel as though they're a part of a city or even a regular customer." The article mentions that Zagat's reviewers had actually looked at Mamma Maria in Boston's North End as being a Boston icon, but the editors at Zagat decided to go with Parker's instead, with editors and reviewers noting that the "glorious" restaurant is "the only place to go for Parker House rolls and Boston cream pie," and that it is "where the elegance of another era thrives via old-time, pricey New England eats, beautiful, formal digs and wonderful service."

Other picks on the list include The Four Seasons in New York, City Tavern in Philadelphia, and Old Ebbitt Grill in Washington, DC.
