Nightlife The Saint

Inquiring minds want to know: What will happen in the newly blue triangular building on Olive, former home of the Wingdome?
Answer: The Saint, a tequila bar with Mexican food, brought to you by the Havana people. They’re aiming to open at the end of the month or early in April.
We’re doing hand-pressed tortillas, hand-chopped salsas, pozole verde, ceviche, carne asada, puerco pibil, etc. Smaller plates, reasonably priced. Very traditional all around. The bar side of things will focus on tequila, although we’ll have other offerings (vodkas, gins, bourbons….) The specialty list will feature seven or eight tequila-based cocktails, all hand-measured and made with fresh juices. We’ll be using the kitchen to cook up our own syrups for use in the drink menu.
Elsewhere, now open for your enjoyment:
And in the Dept. of New(-ish) Chefs on Capitol Hill: Tyler Palagi (from Ferrara on Vashon Island) is now in charge of the kitchen at Smith, while Nick Castleberry (from Sitka & Spruce) has taken over at Artemis (where they say they’ve discontinued live music for the time being).
