Columbia Heights’ Hidden Gem, Bad Saint, Finally Gets Some Recognition!!

Sorry more recognition. More recognition. (and props to Joshua Johnson who called it first a week after their opening.) And well deserved from what I read!! Yesterday’s New York Times review says in part:

“Most people with a glancing knowledge of the cuisine have tried an adobo, a garlic-laden stew braised in soy sauce that’s been soured with vinegar. But Bad Saint’s adobo of tender squid is still astonishing, its sauce deepened and darkened by squid ink and given a slow, lingering burn by long peppers.

The oxtails and bok choi stewed in peanut sauce with an intense undercurrent of shrimp and anchovies is amazing whether this is your first encounter with kare-kare or your hundredth.”

Maybe the rain will the lighten the line a bit tonight…

    I’m guessing after their Michelin mention that they’ll start having quite a bit more national media figures visiting when they come to town.

  • Hidden gem would imply that it’s easy to get a seat there.

  • Thank god they “finally” got recognition through an NYT article. I’m guessing a Bib Gourmand and being named 2nd best new restaurant in the country by Bon Appetit don’t really count.
