Last year Plan B Burger Bar in Milford brought the world an unabashed, excessively fat-laden ode to everybody’s favorite pork product: bacon. That went down as a huge success for them and the pictures made us drool and wish we were there. Believe it or not (actually, we do believe it), Plan B Milford must have been plotting away in their secret lair, laughing maniacally (maniacal laugh, maniacal laugh) while they thought of their next week long food event. Ladies and gentlemen, people of all ages…may we present to you…the one, the only…Seven Days of Chocolate!
That’s a week of chocolate, from 2-11 to 2-17 at Plan B Burger Bar in Milford! Is it a coincidence that there are seven deadly sins, too? Well, you’ll be able to peg down gluttony at least after downing some killer apps, salads, burgers, pasta dishes, desserts, and cocktails that feature the brilliant cocoa bean. Don’t scoff or shake your head like you’re too good for this. Chocolate is used in many cuisines such as the beautiful moles (sauces, not the animals that ruin your yard) of Mexican cooking.
Here’s the menu in all its glory, thanks to Chef John Brennan at Plan B of Milford:
