Yesterday's Restaurant in Review


Some snippets of our St. Patty’s Day lunch at the Paramount Room:

The decor in this vintage building was eclectic and fun:





The staff was friendly, knowledgeable and very open to showing us around.

And the food....the corned beef and fried pickle special was tender and incredibly tasty.


My fries were crisp, hot and salty and the burger, although cooked precisely to medium, was infused with thyme – I hate thyme. It overwhelmed the beef taste – turning it into a thyme burger.


The women’s bathroom was clean and is equipped with a new Dyson hand dryer which allows you to slip your wet hands in and it dries them in seconds, which we had fun playing with.


My overall experience at the Paramount Room was a 7 out of 10...now if they were to get rid of the thyme...

I would rate it a 9

Thank you! We're really excited!

You're in Chicago - I used to live in Chicago. We're going back for a visit in September and I'm really excited. Your lunch looked fantastic - mostly the fried pickles (go figure).

I enjoyed reading through your previous entries!
