Eastern Standard Kitchen and Drinks Review

A vivid red awning beckons patrons of this spacious brasserie-style restaurant. The bar area and red banquettes are filled most nights with Boston's power players (members of the Red Sox management are known to stop in), thirtysomethings, and students from the nearby universities all noshing on raw-bar specialties and comfort dishes such as lamb-sausage rigatoni, rib eye, and burgers. It's a Sunday brunch hot spot, especially on game days (the Big Green Monster is a very short walk away). The cocktail list is one of the best in town, filled with old classics and new concoctions, and in addition to a boutique wine list there is a reserve list for rare beers. A covered, heated patio offers alfresco dining year-round.

    Excellent bar spot

    An excellent, somewhat upscale pub-like place with first rate bartending and very good food. One of Kenmore Square's best food and drink options, far above the norm, and always mobbed during Red Sox games.
