The Saint Austere: It’s hard to keep all the low-lit long-n-narrow locavore joints straight these days, but one bite of The Saint Austere’s melt-in-your-mouth pork belly (accompanied by perfectly-browned Brussels sprouts, $14) will assure that it sticks in the memory. If the exceptionally prepared tapas-style eats (served in adorably-named one-, two- and three-bite portions) don’t get you hooked, the ever-smiling and always helpful staff will probably do the trick. They’ve only got beer and wine to drink, but within those parameters, the choices are expansive, including dozens of beers and even more reds, whites and bubbles. While it may not immediately stand out from Noorman’s Kil, Le Barricou and, well, any other joint on this homogenously old-timey block, we’re confident that The Saint Austere’s rare pairing of deliciousness, affordablibity and cozy ambiance will have you praising a higher power. Saint, indeed!
