FLIP burger boutique Restaurant Review

: Chef Richard Blais approaches the American two-hander with a classic "Blaisian" sense of humor, given his penchant for operating out of the box. These modern, cleanly designed burger emporiums have become hits in the Atlanta fast-casual dining scene, where they were founded. Our favorite may well be the rBQ, which is Blais's riff on Southern barbecue, complete with coleslaw. Rare burger fans might consider the tartare, with a fried egg (we thought overcooked) on top instead of a raw egg. We're not sold on everything, though, and find some of the accoutrements a bit excessive, obscuring the flavor of the very fine meat. For a side dish, blue cheese dressing adorns the tasty sweet potato tots, and fried pickles pair with house-made ranch dressing. The wine list is minimal, and red wines are served too warm. Go for one of the well-selected beers. Have the Krispy Kreme donut shake for dessert. Also located at 3655 Roswell Rd., Buckhead, 404-549-3298.
