A new dessert-themed restaurant with a saucy name is coming to historic Downtown Plano. Called Better Than Sex, it's a chain founded in Florida that serves two things: beverages and desserts with a little naughty on the side.
The restaurant is opening at 1010 E. 15th St. in a prime spot on the main drag that was most recently occupied by Plano Kitchen & Bar, but before that, Angela's at the Crosswalk.
True to the name, all of the desserts have "racy" names with sexual innuendoes, such as Between My Red Velvet Sheets Cheesecake, Popcorn Pimp Cheesecake, and Peanut Butter Perversion.
The brownie is named "Fever." Gird thy loins, here's the description:
"Smooth. Soft. Supple. A warm airy chocolate cake-like brownie full of body that's oozing a subtle chocolate pudding underneath. Rubbing up against cool white vanilla bean balls."
The concept has been featured on the Travel Channel and CBS Sunday Morning News. The original opened in Key West in 2008; a second location opened in Orlando in 2015.
Founders Dani and Len Johnson began to franchise in 2018 with a location in Savannah, Georgia. In addition to Plano, there are also locations in the works for Sarasota and Los Angeles.
Plano is owned by Sheila Phalen-Miller and Derrick Miller, who began construction at the beginning of March and confirm that they anticipate opening in mid-May. The couple is sharing their progress on the restaurant's Facebook page.
The restaurant's dining rooms tend to be dimly lit, with just a handful of tables, with the largest seating four guests, no more. They shy away from large parties and anything that will compromise the intimate ambiance. There are private booths, and the tables are enclosed on three sides.
Their dining rooms are decorated with "lovers art," partial nude profiles, and a menu written to play on the theme.
They're open evenings only, and they do not allow guests under the age of 13. Sorry, people under 13, but this is a big plus.
