Eastern Standard at Hotel Commonwealth
This early 20th-century throwback has the allure of a chorus line of can-can dancers. The staff is dashing—the men dressed in white button-down shirts and black vests and females in ruffled skirts and fishnet stockings. The ruby red-accented decor, cozy banquettes and artwork invite slow sipping of specialty martinis and hours-long meals.
