Village Whiskey Restaurant Review

: Calorie counters need not apply to Jose Garces' hotspot Village Whiskey, located next door to Tinto. Duck fat fries with cheese sauce, a barbecue pork sandwich with fried pickles, and a Nutella shake are a few of the offerings. Then there's the Whiskey King eight-ounce burger, a behemoth bathed in maple bourbon glaze and topped with foie gras, bacon and blue cheese. Weekend brunch is similarly filling, with such dishes as fried chicken and waffles, butter-drenched sweet corn pancakes and a bacon flight. A vast selection of more than 80 browns, from single malts to peaty imports, gives the restaurant its name. While you can order your whiskey neat, or with just a splash of water, whiskey-based cocktails are also offered, such as the classic Old Fashioned.
