A few months ago, the Wing Dome on Olive & Bellevue closed its doors, and I can’t say that I shed a tear. It was replaced with a more muted, sky blue trimmed restaurant (and bar) called The Saint.
Gio introduced Lauren and me to The Saint on election eve. Their tasty margaritas helped our anticipatory nerves. We ate tasty guacamole and chicken mole, all very reasonably priced. Our camera was MIA that night, so dinner pictures will need to wait until next time.
Today we took Vidya to try out The Saint’s brunch. The top dish of the afternoon was Tacos y Heuvos — eggs, grilled vegetables, potatoes, beans, and warm corn tortillas.
We also enjoyed hotcakes con crema batida. Three medium density pancakes served with strawberry tequila sauce, almonds, and agave nectar whipped cream. These guys know how to use their tequila!
The other dish we had was chilaquiles, which is a tortilla chip casserole with salsa and pork, chicken, or eggs. It was intriguing, and tasty enough for a few bites, but I now know that tortilla chip casserole isn’t really my thing 🙂
Overall, the food is good, the drinks are great, the interior is cozy, and the staff are very friendly. The Saint is a great addition to Capitol Hill.
