Eastern Standard Bar & Restaurant Review

My Opinions:  Dinner here was great tonight. The food here is very good, and the service is attentive, but the star of this place is the bar and outside seating. It was busy per usual, boasting an extensive and (overly) creative drink list, a good looking mature crowd, and ever-patient, professional and friendly bartenders. They even have a tasty virgin drink list for the non-drinker or designated driver.

Insider hint: if you want a bar table, try to snag the 1st corner table by the host stand (it has the most booth seating and best view).

     Try:  ES Cubano
     Skip: Seared Salmon
