Venue Info

The tiny (and we do mean tiny - they accept parties of no more than 4) Filipino restaurant in Columbia Heights leans super traditional; don’t be surprised to see items like kinilaw (the Filipino version of ceviche) or tapa (air-dried cured beef) with a runny egg. Wash everything down with cocktails that are borderline tropical from the Room 11 team, or a sturdy glass of Lambrusco. Getting into Bad Saint isn't easy, but the experience is unforgettable. Plates are served family-style in no particular order and the service feels gracious and familiar.
