Shoppers seeking a hot new dining spot can soon check out Plan B Burger Bar, the popular upscale eatery for the beer and burger connoisseur. Stamford Town Center is the first Southern Fairfield County location for this fast-growing chain known for its high-quality, American comfort food, great beer selection and neighborhood-bar atmosphere. All beef is certified natural and humane and is ground on site, meaning the bodacious burgers are served up fresh, with green fries – fried green beans – or any number of creative sides. Scrumptious salads, appetizers and entrees, an extensive selection of American craft beers and the largest collection of boutique bourbons in the state make Plan B Burger Bar a must-visit when it opens in the Outdoor Plaza this fall.
“We’re excited to welcome these fashionable and fun offerings,” says Stamford Town Center Marketing & Sponsorship Director Jim Zielinski. “All are great additions to our lively and continuously expanding lineup.”
