3.6/5  rDev -13.5%

This restaurant is about a year old, located in Kenmore Sq. in the Hotel Commonwealth where the Rat (punk club) used to be. Bar is on the left running the length of the place when you walk in, table seating is on the right and the place has ample outdoor seating. Huge ceilings, bistro feel, often w/ Jazz in the background, but i did notice Pinkerton playing one night. Mirrors, wood, leather, and the huge ceiling make this a very comfortable place.

Service from waiters has been spotty at best, but the bartenders are some of the best in Boston, a couple classically trained at the B-Side in Cambridge. Grab a seat at the bar if at all possible.

Tap selection is decent, but limited. Two sets of the same 4-5 taps: Anchor Steam, Czechvar, Miller Lite, Sam or Harpoon, maybe Bass or Guinness recently. The bottle selection is pretty respectable for a trendy restaurant. De Ranke XX, some Unibroue, a couple Sams, DuPont, Allagash, Cisco, some British brews. Might be a bit overpriced, but it is a trendy restaurant.

Food is good, but pricey. ES might have the best burger in Boston. Juicy and hot patty, the bun is toasted, with lots of butter. And great fries. 13 bucks. But try it. Other food hightlights: pork chop was tasty and tender, cheese plate is interesting. They sport a raw bar, much like Great Bay down the street.

Overall, an ok beer place. Its a good place for a date, if you want to have a good brew selection and really impress the lady at the same time. GREAT drink menu (again, some B-Side favorites pop up). Hit the bar, grab a burger, and see what a great atmosphere feels like.
