Bad Saint

Bad Saint, web site, 3226 11th Street NW, Washington, DC, closed Tuesday, no phone. (Metro Trip Planner – opens in new window) [WaPo | Washingtonian | TripAdvisor | City Paper | Ylp]

No reservations, get there well before 5:30 when they open, they have only 24 seats and your entire party had better be there at that very moment. No tables seat more than four and everywhere it is crowded, including for your knees let’s hope your coat is not that heavy. The good news is that it is definitely worth it. Creative Filipino cooking at its best, and I don’t mean that as faint praise. I’ve had most of the menu, and none of it is worse than interesting, noting they are not afraid to serve you sour-tasting food. The two best items are the bronzino, and the clams with sausage and Sichuan chiles; they are two of the very best dishes in town right now. Trendy, you get a good view of the kitchen, not cheap but reasonably priced for what you get, worth the trip and the wait for sure.
