The Saint Austere is NOT a wine bar. She is NOT a lounge or a club. She is NOT a restaurant, a pub, or even a gastropub for that matter. Simply put, The Saint Austere is an enabler. She is a social and casual establishment with a singular goal in mind; to ply you with great wine and beer at a reasonable price. It’s not that The Saint Austere is a bad friend. In fact, she may be your best friend. She is honest enough to tell you what you’ve secretly suspected all along; that while you’re pretty cool sober, you are a legend after a few drinks. Best of all: The Saint Austere cooks her ass off. Cubans rave about the Italiano in Cuba sandwich, Spaniards have said the Patatas Bravas are legit and Italians love her Polenta and Broccoli Rabe. The menu has been painstakingly thought out to keep you in good spirit as you imbibe and make some bad life choices.
