Boston magazine reports, “Restaurateur Garrett Harker’s quartet of forthcoming Kenmore Square venues will include a new version of his late, great Eastern Standard, which closed earlier in the pandemic, breaking a lot of hearts in the process.”
Apparently, COVID/property owner/restaurant drama forced the closure of what the Boston Globe called “a perfect restaurant.”
Now, “Harker has reached a deal to open four restaurants in the Bower apartment building in the Fenway Center development, a luxury mixed-use project on Beacon Street, just a five-minute stroll from his old stomping grounds at the Hotel Commonwealth,” adds the Boston Globe.
The new Eastern Standard will offer breakfast, lunch, dinner and late-night menus.
As the restaurant builds out, Harker stated on Instagram, “This space may not look like much right now, but come next year, it’ll be full – of a new team, of plates of steak frites and bread pudding and burgers and the plate of the day, of guests new and old, of laughter and tears, of whiskey smashes, of cheers when the Sox hit a homer, and of stories.
“You shared some of those stories with us during these past few years, and we’re honored and humbled to hear what a huge part of your lives Eastern Standard became over 15 years. We can’t wait to see you again real soon.”
How can you not be excited for the new Eastern Standard to open in Spring, 2023?
