THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED FLIP burger boutique Restaurant Review

: Experimental and ever out-of-the-box chef Richard Blais approaches the American two-hander with a classic "Blaisian" sense of humor. At this outpost of FLIP, the menu is less ambitious, although the $19 foie gras-loaded burger is available. Offered here are some of the favorites from this spot's former HD1 days where Blais tried to develop a hot dog concept. Our favorite among the unusual burgers may well be the rBQ, which is Blais's riff on Southern barbecue, with a pile of pulled barbecue brisket on top of a burger, anointed with coleslaw, Carolina style. However, you can play it safe with the Farmer burger made with White Oak Pastures' (Albany, Ga.) grass-fed beef. For a side dish, try the crisp battered onion rings with a house-made beer mustard for dipping. The wine list is minimal, and red wines are served too warm. Go for one of the well-selected beers, such as Decatur's Three Taverns on draught. For dessert, we like the Krispy Kreme donut shake. A patio has been constructed on the roof. Other locations.
