September 2013 Food and Drink Pairing: Riverstone Café's 5 Degree Martini and Pour House's Deluxe Burger


The Sip

Riverstone Café’s Nick Cacchione has installed a chill tower featuring four rotating taps of vodka kept at a bracing five degrees. The best representation of this cool new tool is the 5 Degree Martini, crafted with a silky-clean pour of Absolut. A trio of olives stuffed with blue cheese nudges this classic toward luscious oblivion. $8.50. 150 N. Pottstown Pike, Exton, (610) 594-2233, riverstonecafe.com.

The Bite

The Pour House’s soon-to-be legendary Deluxe Burger begins with a custom blend of brisket, short rib and chuck from famed purveyor Pat LaFrieda. Nestled inside a toasted brioche bun and covered with slices of American cheese, this juicy gem is further bolstered by a generous smear of house-made bacon marmalade and a side of truffled Parmesan fries. $13.99. 116 N. Pottstown Pike, Exton, (610) 280-7900, pjspourhouse.com
