The martini is a cocktail made with gin and vermouth, and garnished with an olive or a lemon twist.

Over the holidays, chef Nick Elmi's Royal Boucherie in Old City offered a special lunch deal. Order a lunch entrée and you get a martini for $2.

The deal at the French-inspired American brasserie proved to be so popular that Royal Boucherie decided to extend it.
