  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.

In November, Zachary Bird was hanging out in the 'burbs with his dad, Bill, when he saw the light. The handsome, 10-foot, cast-iron Victorian lamp with a crown in the motif of acanthus leaves sparked a conversation - and that led to a quest, more modest than Sir Galahad's, but no less epic for the 46-year-old Zack. Traveling deep into the web, Zack learned intimately about Victorian gas lamps (down to the 1891 Welsbach patent for the gas mantle), discovered connections to Disneyland and a dentist/pilot/businessman/collector, followed leads to Cape May County, and traversed a field of dreams in South Jersey.
