Up-and-coming creative bartenders in Boston?

This thread came to me as I was having lunch at Daily Grill near the Pru today. Who are some of the young, skilled, up-and-coming bartenders here in Boston? The ones who can create an awesome drink on the fly with just a few hints as to ingredients or style?

I'll start off by nominating Chris at the Daily Grill. He knows I like Hendrick's gin, and he came up with something with cucumber muddled in Hendrick's, fresh lime, a dash of simple syrup, more Hendrick's, then the whole thing shaken and served as a martini with cucumber garnish. So smooth, refreshing and tasty, an outstanding tipple...and something he said he just made up for the occasion. I was in awe.

Any other suggestions? besides Jackson at ES of course, who IMHO is the most creative and professional barmaster in town. I'd love to get some additional suggestions.
