Eastern Standard is a lively restaurant in the heart of Boston’s Kenmore Square. We are an American Brasserie committed to excellent service and warm hospitality welcoming guests from 7am to 2am every day.

In the kitchen we pour over old standbys, devoting ourselves to integrity and consistency. The fare is familiar yet worldly, drawing inspiration from French and American traditions. Our celebrated cocktail menu and thoughtful wine list can comfort or delight in equal measure.

From beers before a Sox game to a milestone anniversary, we know there isn’t one, quintessential Eastern Standard experience. Humbly we strive to begin anew with each attempt, tailoring our service to our guests. We treat newcomers like regulars and regulars like family.

We believe in Kenmore Square. We believe in our city. We believe we can make a difference.

Eastern Standard opened in 2005. We like to think we’re getting a little bit better every day.
