***July 03, 2006: Paramount Restaurant***

Paramount Restaurant
44 Charles St.
Boston, MA
On the way back from a weekend in NYC a friend and I stopped in Boston for a little shopping and some food. To our disappointment, most of the restaurants were closed in preparation for the July 4th holiday. Luckily we found Paramount on Charles Street just down from our hotel which offered take-out that we could eat on our hotel’s patio. One of the specials of the day was a lobster roll and since I've never had one before and it seemed like Boston was the perfect place to try it out.
I officially love lobster rolls. Or this version at least! Big chunks of lobster that had been mixed with a light, zesty, lemony sauce were stuffed into a toasted brioche bun with a little bit of shredded cabbage. Because of the lack of vegetables, I decided to substitute the fries that normally come with the roll for grilled asparagus. In the summer heat grilled vegetables and the fresh lobster roll really hit the spot. I hope this special is on their menu a lot!
