Back in March we told you about Plan B Burger Bar opening up a restaurant in the Stamford Town Center. Then, you most likely sighed when you saw the opening was sometime in the fall of 2012. Fall? No summer without burgers, American craft beers, and bourbon? Well, sigh no more. Plan B Burger Bar will be open for business this Saturday, 8/4, starting at 2 pm!
There are lots of things that we’re excited about in terms of Plan B Burger Bar opening up in Stamford. First of all, the meat they use is never frozen and is ground in the restaurant every day. Secondly, this beef is Certified Humane which means they are allowed to graze to their four-stomachs’ content, they aren’t fed junk, and they aren’t treated with antibiotics. Plus, whenever they can, they get food, beer, and more locally.
What else are we gushing over? Their love, appreciation, and worship of drinks! To be honest, we don’t know jack about bourbon, so we’re excited to learn more from the servers and bartenders at Plan B. We do know a helluva lot about craft beer, though, and they’ll have a ton of the good stuff. Did we mention that there are certified Cicerones (beer sommeliers) who can lead you to that perfect beer time after time?
Plan B Burger Bar isn’t just drinks and burgers, though. They have a nice menu of American and bar classics that are kicked up a bit and fancy-fied. You’ve got some organic portabella or truffle fries, lobster rolls or sliders, wings, a bourbon baked brie plate, Beef Wellington bites (Gordon Ramsay would approve), a soup of the day, and 8 different salads.
Now, in terms of looks, this place is gonna scorch it. It’s right at Stamford Town Center, so they were able to go crazy because there was lots of room. We’re talking 4,500 square feet! There’s an outdoor patio, a large bar for those nights out, and of course the dining area that seats 185 people. There’s also a lounge area if you feel like taking it easy and chilling with some friends with some cocktails, brews, or bourbon. The lighting is also pretty freaking sick. Above the bar you’ll find meat hooks that have lights attached to them. There are tons of other fun touches around the restaurant like a metal bull head statue, a red neon sign that blinks on and off with “Eat, Meat.” Finishing touch? The M flickers on and off. Sick.
So, we’re definitely excited to try out Plan B Burger Bar in Stamford and all they have to offer. We know that Connecticut loves good burgers, so let’s see what they got.
