To Old Friends & New Spaces , Welcome Back Eastern Standard

Curated by Andrew Thompson
Wine Director 

Deliveries begin January 15th

New year, new Eastern Standard. The return of this Boston institution is something we’ve been looking forward to. And while the location is different, the welcoming feeling and the warmth and kindness of the staff is very much the same. We’ve already enjoyed a late-night burger or two, shared some Marrow and Champagne with friends, and closed the restaurant with ES’ impossibly hospitable bar tenders.

Eastern Standard is home. And Andrew Thompson and his team have become wonderful guardians of their new space at 775 Beacon Street. His picks for this month represent styles that have been ES staples from the very beginning. We know you’re going to enjoy them. So, here’s to new friends, new wine, and a brand new year. 

T H E   W I N E S
  • Diamantakis Winery, Petali Assyrtiko -Light & clean. Acid driven, citrusy, so refreshing. Zippy, clean Assyrtiko with just a little lemon pith in the background. Pair with ES Artichoke Agnolotti or Smoked Bluefish. 
  • Domaine Bois de Boursan, Cuvée Le Petit Oursan -Medium bodied & lifted. Juicy, smooth, the coziest blend. GS & Merlot! Loire Valley elegance. Rustic is all the right ways. Pair with ES Sunday Mushroom Bolognese.
  • Grasso Fratelli, Trej -Medium bodied & grippy. Clear, textured, simply delicious. The perfect Piedmontese blend. Trej is bright, textured, and way too quaffable. Pair with ES Steak Frites or Duck Breast.
  • Château Combel-la-Serre, Cahors -Full bodied & lush. Bold, brooding, savory Malbec. Earthy, meaty Malbec. Austere, but gentle, drying tannins provide the right amount of texture. Pair with the ES Burger or Leg of Lamb.
