Overview

Since 2005, Eastern Standard has served an all-day Kenmore Square crowd modern American fare like a house burger on a brioche bun, grilled flat-iron steak with herb fries or roasted branzino with shellfish tapioca. This generously-sized, modern-day brasserie features a front patio, expansive marble-top bar and lounge alongside a roomy dining room, where guests drink from a lengthy list of beer, global wines, classic and house cocktails, like the Old Cuban (a rum blend, lime, mint, sparkling wine).
