If you want to fight for elbow room with sweaty stadium seat-warmers at a nearby sports bar, feel free. But before (or after) hitting Fenway, Eastern Standard offers much more comfortable environs: an unpretentious American brasserie with one of the city’s best, most consistent bar programs, plus a shaded patio for people-watching. Rare beers abound and the stiff sips—like a regularly rotating milk punch—are always home runs.
