Omni Parker House also offers delivery of their iconic pie to anywhere in the country. Boston Cream Pies are prepared fresh and shipped frozen directly from the bake shop in an insulated unit with ice packs.
Omni Chicago Hotel—676 Restaurant & Bar at Omni Chicago will offer slices of Boston Cream Pie October 22 and October 23 using Omni Parker House’s famed recipe for $6.76. All proceeds will be donated to the Greater Chicago Food Depository as a part of Omni’s “Say Goodnight to Hunger” initiative.”
Omni Mount Washington Resort—On October 23, Omni Mount Washington will offer a day full of fun events dedicated to the delectable treat. Guests can enjoy activities such “Build Your Own Boston Cream Pie” class, sip on Boston Cream Pie martinis, and more.
The signature dessert, originally known as the “Parker House Chocolate Cream Pie,” was a culinary creation of Boston’s Omni Parker House in the 1850s by Armenian-French chef M. Sanzian. Today, the two-layer golden cake filled with sweet pastry cream and frosted with chocolate glaze remains a crowd favorite as the official dessert of Massachusetts.
