Plan B Burger Bar has some big news. They are coming to Fairfield this fall in the old Post Office at 1262 Boston Post Road.
Plan B is an upscale burger bar created by Hartford-based Locals 8 Restaurant Holdings with six (soon to be seven) locations throughout Connecticut and Massachusetts. This burger mecca features all-American craft beers, bourbon, and burgers made from beef that is ground in-house daily, always fresh, never frozen, and free of antibiotics and hormones. We like that!
Allie j Gamble, founder and CEO of Locals 8 Restaurant Group explains, “We don’t think of our restaurants as a chain, there is just a lot of us. Each Plan B location is unique. We build relationships with local farms because the food is always fresher. For example, in Milford, we work with Robert Treat Farm, Bishops Acres, Holcomb and Jones Farms. In Springfield, we draw from incredible local brewers like the Mayflower Brewing Company. We’ll do the same thing at Plan B Fairfield. We’re excited to partner up with growers in the community and offer specialty items that our other locations won’t feature. It's part of our dream of growing big while remaining small.”
The 4,600 square foot restaurant will include a large bar and dining room that will seat 140 people. The design will integrate a mix of natural resources such as reclaimed wood and modern elements like their famous, gleaming, meat hook light fixtures. Plan B will also seek out local artists to create pieces that reflect the artisanal quality of boutique bourbon and craft beer.
“The old post office is the perfect spot for us; it’s a historical building in town that’s meaningful to the community. We’ll maintain and preserve the integrity of the property, while breathing some new life into the space. It’s the ideal fit for our burger concept because we offer high quality food with approachable pricing that compliments the current offerings in the area,” says Shawn M. Skehan, co-founder and president of Locals 8 Restaurant Group.
Gamble adds, “A big reason that we’re bringing Plan B to Fairfield is because our customers in the area have been complaining that they have to drive to either Milford or Stamford. So this location will help to bridge that gap and cut down on requests from hungry, thirsty, fun people who are jonesing for good booze and great burgers.”
