Adjacent to the stately Hotel Commonwealth, Eastern Standard Kitchen & Drinks, the dining darling of resurgent Kenmore Square, is a classic grand café with old world style and new world cuisine. Burgundy banquettes and tiny tiled floors give the casually elegant dining room a true brasserie feel that’s echoed by the menu of French and American classics.

Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner seven days a week, Eastern Standard is the perfect spot for a quiet business breakfast or lunch, a pre-ballgame drink or a bite to eat at the majestic marble bar or on the landscaped patio, overlooking the urban bustle of Kenmore Square.
