I was visiting the world’s best aunty from Chicago this summer. She picked me up at the airport and drove me to Glastonbury for an early dinner at one of her favorite restaurant’s: Bricco’s. Unfortunately, it was too early and Bricco’s wasn’t open yet, so we walked across the parking lot to the much heralded Plan B for hamburgers.
I have eaten many times at all of the best burger spots in Chicago (Au Cheval, Kuma’s, etc.) and Plan B measures up! It’s the real deal. My bacon burger was juicy and pink with tons of pure beef flavor, along with char from the grill, crispy bacon and melted cheese.
The most awesome part was the way Plan B grinds their meat: it’s a little more finely ground than most, which seems to allow the seasoning to penetrate all the way through, making each bite more addictive than the last. My aunt loved her mini burgers but only ate 2/3. I have serious regrets that I forgot that last little guy in her refrigerator.
Connecticut is back on the burger map! Plan B is smart, with local craft beers, complimentary pickles whose recipe seems to have to come straight from Rein’s Deli, and a juicy, unique burger. Not to take anything away from Harry’s Hamburgers, my favorite CT burger, but I’ll be going back to Plan B!
