Finally made it to Village Whiskey. Recently deemed the best burger in Philadelphia. Went for the standard burger with russian dressing and bibb lettuce (as opposed to the 24 dollar foie gras burger). Pretty great burger, I'm down with the soft sesame bun and minimal garnishes. The bottom half of the bun was soaked red with burger juice, but somehow managed not to fall apart - maybe because I ate it in about 3 minutes. Also the famous duck fat fries covered in short ribs and cheddar sauce, fantastic.
Lunch is the way to go here, there was no wait for a table (which can get brutal around happy hour / dinner ) and the menu is the same. The modern rustic thing they have going on feels real and comfortable. Pretty much all of Garces' restaurants win as far as design & service go. If I made a million dollars a year I would just sit at the bar all day drinking expensive whiskey and eating deviled eggs.
