New Burger Favorite
Adam Erace reviews Village Whiskey and enjoys the service and cocktails but it is of course, really about the burger.
It was rapture on a roll, starring a patty given a thicker-than-average sear, a textural victory that held all the luscious juices hostage until my first bite liberated them a trickle at a time. The droplets of fat glistened like dew, quickly absorbed by a fluffy house-baked sesame-seeded bun cradling intensely beefy beef cooked a blushing medium. It was perfectâ€”and wasnâ€™t even the fancy foie gras-crowned Whiskey King. My burger was the $9 Village Burger, upgraded to $13 with a fried egg and cheddar, and if it isnâ€™t the best burger in Philly, itâ€™s at least my new favorite.
