Plan B Burger Bar On Thrillist's "Best New Burgers" List

CT-based burger restaurant on a national best-of list (and it's not steamed)

Just a month after opening its doors in Washington, D.C., Plan B Burger Bar has ended up on Thrillist's list of "The 15 Best New Burgers Of 2014."

Thrillist's roundup honors the outpost in the nation's capital, which debuted Nov. 3. "If you're a CT-based burger spot, and you plan to open your first non-New England location, you better pay homage to the place from which you came by adding Maine lobster, smoked Gouda, caramelized onion, and a tomato-corn spread," editors noted. "And also maybe by calling it the New Englander or whatever."

The "surf"-topped burger has been a staple of the Plan B menu since the inaugural location opened in West Hartford in 2006. Since then, the Locals 8 Restaurant Group has brought Plan Bs to Simsbury, Glastonbury, Milford, Stamford and Springfield, Mass. 

Plan B Burger Bar is one of three Connecticut-based restaurant groups to expand beyond New England in the past few years. The Barteca Restaurant Group has opened Barcelona Wine Bar and Bartaco locations in Atlanta, and a Barcelona Wine Bar opened in D.C. in the fall of 2013. A Bartaco and another Barcelona are also planned for Reston, Va. Max Restaurant Group also opened The Cooper, described as a "farm to table modern American grill," in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. May 19.
