Eastern Standard

Jackson Cannon really was the man who started it all. When the Balthazar-like Eastern Standard opened in 2005, Cannon helmed a bar program committed to a higher level of mixology, from top-shelf spirits to freshly squeezed mixing juices. Suddenly Red Sox fans started drinking Sazeracs instead of Bud Lights, and other area bartenders took notice. While Cannon has since left the day-to-day operations to head up The Hawthorne, subsequent managers have only deepened the bar’s commitment to quality and creativity.
