Nice! Earlier we heard that 11th Street's Bad Saint was on Bon Appetit's list of best new restaurants (they also gave a shootout to Columbia Heights and Petworth as great dining destinations) and now the magazine has announced that it's the #2 best new restaurant in America -- not too shabby!
I've never been but friends who've gone have universally raved about it. The Filipino spot was started by Nick Pimentel and Genevieve Villamora with chef Tom Cunanan -- and actually started as a Kickstarter.
Bon Appetit also has a pretty delicious looking photo gallery of the spot too in their article on it.
Always like hearing good news about the neighborhood. Maybe our area is not so crummy after all, City Paper.
Bad Saint is located at 3226 11th Street NW, next to Wonderland. Here's their website.
