    The drink menu is 7 & 1/2 pages long...it's insane! But the food was phenomenal - the raw oysters were great, and so was the gnocchi-inspired dish I had. I also recommend the carrot cake!

    If you book a private dining room, be warned that it's only semi-private. Other guests share the room. But get the carrot cake with fruit spread. HUGE and delicious

    Eastern Standard is out of this world. While the plates are a little pricey for brunch, it's a nice splurge every once in a while. I often go for the cheddar omelette or the French toast.

    Very over hyped, I have never had a good meal/cocktail here. Also, avoid lemons in your drink as the health dept. recently reported that Eastern Standard does not wash lemons at the bar (01/22/14).

    Grab a seat at the bar for drinks or dinner. The bartenders are fantastic -- and incredibly nice. Don't be afraid to let them whip up something of their own creation. They always seem to get it right.
