Berwyn’s Best Contest

The Berwyn Development Corporation’s (BDC) Berwyn’s Best competition began in mid-May and was fixed on finding the best local egg dish. Thirteen establishments with egg dishes on their regular menus competed to make it into the Top 5 Egg-Whisking Establishments. These five local haunts  identified their favorite egg dish for the second round of voting, and now the vote is in! The winner is the Avocado Toast from Lavergne’s Tavern.

Owner Jerry Hernandez and Chef Mark reacted to the award saying, “We feel truly honored for the opportunity to showcase what we have to offer. “Fresh organic ingredients truly highlight the simplicity of the dish. Our avocado toast has been a fan favorite ever since we started offering our weekend brunch. We hope everyone will come out and try the dish alongside our other brunch offerings!”
