As this restaurant is a block away from my apartment I've stopped in many times - lots of times I will do take out. Most people are familiar with the delicious Paramount breakfast, as evidenced by the long lines that form on weekends. I have directed more than a few lost tourists to the red awnings - as far as I can tell it is in every guide book! Even still, it has not lost that neighborhood feel.
The menu has a nice selection of wine and beers as well as a delicious bread and dipping sauce to tide you over while you wait. This time is was a light foccocia bread with an edamame hummus - so fresh tasting!

For meals, my mom went with the "low and slow" pulled pork sandwich with Cheddar cheese and a chipotle BBQ sauce.
However, my favorite part of the Paramount burger is the side of onion rings and the sweet potato fries. I really think I need to just order some sides the next time I go in. The sweet potato fries are just thick enough to taste the potato but cooked and greasy enough to indulge the french fry fairies. Normally, I like the thicker battered onion rings, but with these, the breading perfectly coats the onions and isn't too greasy at all. The sides really make this meal for me.
The Paramount is a perfect spot for a trip in to grab a quick bite at any time of day!
After eating Nick and I met up with our friends A & A to go see "The Hangover Part II." Definitely funny - grosser antics than the first and rather formulaic as it follows the first plot line almost perfectly, but still good for some summer fun.
