There's a very good reason Boston Magazine has named Eastern Standard one of Boston's top 50 restaurants in 2012: it is. Eastern Standard serves good food all day amid the slew of restaurants that make their home in Kenmore Square.

The laid back atmosphere of Eastern Standard allows diners to linger and enjoy their food, whether seated at the very social bar area or at one of the comfortable tables within their dining room, guests always feel welcome.
Serving food all day long starting with breakfast and ending late in the night (by Boston standards), a meal here can be had whenever you want one. Indulge in their breakfast staples, or stop in for a lingering lunch. Enjoy their raw bar selections as they arrive to your table on a silver platter topped with glistening mounds of ice and the perfect variety of sauces to compliment your seafood. Or splurge on a full dinner, just make sure to order dessert. Wildly popular and fabulous is their homemade ice cream; flavor selections vary and are quite whimsical. If you are lucky, maybe you'll be there to enjoy the perfectly balanced sweet and salty combination: buttered popcorn ice cream.
And when you opt to pair your selection with one of Eastern Standard's creative cocktails (they even have a lovely list of mocktails as well) you'll have more than a meal, you'll have one complete dining experience.
Surrounded by stellar competition, like Island Creek Oyster Bar and Petit Robert Bistro, Eastern Standard must maintain its pristine quality in order to compete, and they always do.
