Naomi Levy

Eastern Standard Kitchen & Drinks
Bar Manager
Boston, MA
At the age of 17 Naomi Levy began her career at a Ruby Tuesday in
Maryland. Although starting as a server, she was “hooked by the pace
and rhythm of restaurant service and drawn to the drama and
challenges of the bar.” Over the next few years, she continued to learn
and grow, working at casual restaurants, beer bars and in catering
until finding a home in fine dining.

In 2008, Naomi was part of the opening team at Hungry Mother,
where she remained for two years, helping the restaurant achieve national acclaim. In 2010, Naomi was hired on as a bartender at Eastern Standard Kitchen & Drinks in Boston, where she remains to this day, now as the Bar Manager and Head Bartender. Eastern Standard is widely regarded as one of the premier cocktail bars in the country, with awards coming from many national publications as well as at Tales of the Cocktail, where they won the Barroom Brawl in 2011 and Best High Volume Cocktail Bar in 2012.

Naomi’s own accolades include being chosen as a Cocktail Apprentice at Tales of the Cocktail in 2012 and winning the Centennial Macchu Pisco Sour Boston competition in 2011 and Boston Speed Rack in 2012. She went on to win 2 national competitions, winning the Barenjager national competition in 2013 and in 2014 she represented the USA in the Bacardi Legacy Global competition in Moscow after winning the national competition.

Naomi's love and dedication to her craft is enhanced by her charisma, charm, and desire to make people happy. Appreciating the time and energy that goes into her own work only compounds her drive to "create a unique and memorable experience on what could be someone’s one night out all month.”
