Spotluck Spotlight: Villain & Saint


Villain & Saint

Villain & Saint didn’t take long settling in to the Bethesda music and food scene. Stop in on any given weekday or weekend night and you’ll probably get treated to a live performance up on their stage. 

Our favorite part of Villain & Saint (besides the signed Aerosmith guitar hanging on the wall, of course) is their creative menu offering villainously good food that may just help you keep that saintly figure. On the “Villain” side are classics like ribs, cheeseburgers, fries, and chili. Balancing it out on the “Saint” side are some lighter options such as burrata, beet salad, and their infamous zucchini pancakes. 


We’ve compiled some of the must-haves when you stop by this Bethesda spot:


Zucchini Pancakes

You’re looking at one of the most delicious ‘vegetables’ you’ll ever have. Thin zucchini pancakes are fried to perfection and topped with sliced granny smith apples, smoked salmon, and a chive crème fraîche. And it counts as your serving of veggies, right?


Salt Roasted Beets 

This might actually count as vegetables, but it’s equally delicious. If you’re a beet fan, order this refreshing salad. Both red and golden beets, avocado, pickled onions, and some spices are served on a bed of homemade hummus. 


Farmhouse Deviled Eggs

Deviled eggs are a staple everywhere, but these are unlike any you’ve ever had. In addition to the filling, they are topped with onions, salami, feta cheese, and a basil vinaigrette. Deviled eggs are now officially acceptable to order for breakfast, lunch, AND dinner.


Saint Louis Slow Smoked Pork Ribs

These are slathered in Villain & Saint’s very own BBQ sauce, and are slow roasted for hours on the smoker. They don’t steal the show entirely though thanks to the baked beans and homemade coleslaw on the side. Of course, finished with a basket of fries (nothing wrong with that). 

No reason to drive a few hours to catch a good show; stop in Villain & Saint and hang with these guys to make your bellies and ears happy at the same time!
