Our Boston Cocktail Lounge
At 17, Naomi was already hooked by the pace and rhythm of restaurant service and drawn to the drama and challenges of the bar. In 2008, she joined the opening team at Hungry Mother in Cambridge and in 2010 she started at the acclaimed Eastern Standard Kitchen & Drinks, first as bartender, then bar manager. There, she and her team took home multiple honors through the years.
Naomi’s personal accolades include being named one of Zagat’s “30 under 30”, receiving Star Chefs’ Rising Star award with a Community designation, and being voted Boston Magazine’s Reader’s Choice for Best Bartender in the annual “Best of Boston” issue. She has also won several competitions including the Boston Speed Rack, the National Barenjager Bartender Competition, and the Bacardi Legacy Cocktail Competition.
Naomi’s passion for cocktailing extends to her delight in engaging with guests and introducing them to the new flavors that make their way into her innovative, delicious drinks made from fresh, seasonal ingredients
