Bad Saint, the Filipino spot on 11th Street, was recently named the second best new restaurant in the US by Bon Appetit, and now there's more plaudits: Zagat has put it on their list of the 12 hottest restaurants in the world. Not too shabby.
The list also includes places in France, Copenhagen, Singapore, Madrid and Tokyo, and Bad Saint is one of the six in the US.
The article mentions the restaurant's small size and line to get in and recommends "grabbing a drink at one of the many worthy bars and restaurants nearby on 11th Street NW" for the wait.
Maybe someone should tell the City Paper.
