Last night my pal Arthur and his band played a gig at a restaurant-bar in Boston's South End, and a large group of us turned out for a night of alcohol, soul-food, and music. The weekend of course, wouldn't be complete without post-alcohol brunch, so this morning a smaller group of us decided to try Eastern Standard in Fenway.
Most of us have already been to Eastern Standard before - at some point or other - for after-work drinks or dinner. Per report though, brunch is supposed to be pretty decent and worth a visit. Added to the fact that it's close to home, it was hard to pass up
I decided on the Eggs Benedict, given that I've been sugar over-loaded recently and was in the mood for something savory
Although the biscuit was delicious (they used a biscuit as a base rather than an English muffin) the eggs were inconsistently done. One was over-cooked, and the other was a bit too runny.
Everyone else was starving and didn't want to play the "let's wait until Victoria finishes taking pictures of all of our food before we can eat" game, so the only other person's dish that I was able to photograph was Louis'. He ordered the pork hash with poached egg:
He's still smiling even though I stole his food... and it took me close to 5 minutes to even get a decent shot due to lighting
Although not photographed, Ammara and Arthur got the cinnamon French toast with fresh fruit, and Jason got the buttermilk pancakes. According to them, the food was decent, but not amazing
