I haven't been to eastern Standard since Jaime left. Is the food as good as it was? Has it changed? The menu on their website looks pretty much the same. I'm sure the drinks are still great but I worry about the chacuterie and the offal.
I had the charcuterie plate with a friend last week and it was wonderful. Bone marrow is also always delicious.
I went last weekend for brunch, a meal I usually avoid. The food was really good, still solild; had the frisee, seems not to have changed at all, and the charcuterie plate was really good with two pates/terrines, two smoked sausages, and head cheese (I hate the American term for this!), all were excellent. Ditto for beef tartar. Of course the cocktails were outstanding as well.
