Best of Boston

2005 Best Beacon Hill Restaurant, Neighborhood

The Paramount still gives us comfort, even after all these years (68, to be exact). The menu, however, leaps past standard comfort fare: The linguine is tossed with mussels, marinara, and fennel, for example, and the salads are adorned with shrimp and goat cheese.
