  The Asian street-food bandwagon has picked up some Main Line polish, as Nectar chef Patrick Feury has taken the steamed pork bun to a dangerous place: potential addiction. Feury has sourced a perfect bun, a palm-sized white cloud of fold-over pastry. But it's the pork belly inside that got me, which Feury gives the expected fusion approach, the well-trimmed meat rolled up like Italian porchetta, then basted in a dark, gingery Asian braise. Perfectly rendered, but still tender and juicy, the pork roulade is shined with hoisin, then dabbed with sriracha-spiked Kewpie Japanese mayonnaise.

A white stone angel perched on a very tall pedestal, silhouetted against the sunny sky, and a stained glass window lying on its side on the ground were evidence that the building that lay in rubble around them had once been a church. The angel had looked down from the ceiling of the sacristy of St. Monica's Church in Berwyn. "There were two of them, one above either side of the altar. I guess they couldn't save the other one," said the Rev. George G. Hagenbach on Thursday as he surveyed the wreckage of the 102-year-old Catholic Church, where he is pastor to more than 1,000 families.

After some deliberation, the Easttown Zoning Commission approved an application permitting construction of a 500-square-foot deck at the rear of William O'Hara Jr.'s house at 405 Rock Creek Circle in Berwyn. The application was submitted at a commission meeting Monday by contractor Charles Viola Jr. on behalf of O'Hara. Viola and O'Hara sought approval for the deck, which will also serve as an emergency exit from the house, after learning that three of the deck's four footings would extend 3 to 4 feet into the township's flood-plain setback, where building is prohibited.

Overbrook Market, on 63rd Street near Overbrook Avenue, put out a jar for the team.
