Yes, today’s burger game has indeed taken a turn for the fantastical. You know this... and you support this.
So today we bring news of a certain chef who also agrees that anything worth doing between two buns is worth doing well.
Introducing Flip Buckhead, the second Atlanta outpost of the Westside institution from Top Chef’s Richard Blais and your (other) go-to for ossobuco burgers and liquid nitrogen milkshakes, opening Tuesday.
You know the drill: as you make your entrance, like you’ve done countless times before out West, you’ll first be greeted by a giant bar laced with wraparound windows and flat-screens surrounded by gilded white picture frames. You’ll want to get warmed up here with a bottle of Three Philosophers ale or a boozy Cream Soda (vanilla cognac, cream, ginger ale).
Then, and only then, will you make your way onto the tarmac of communal white tables in the center of the minimalist main room. Or better yet, grab a booth (we recommend the side that’s not upside down) and order up a Duck Duck Goose with foie gras and duck confit, or the more obvious Lobster BLT.
And of course, your burger escapade would not be complete without a Krispy Kreme... a liquid nitrogen milkshake reminiscent of a doughnut-y fog machine in a glass.
Liquid doughnuts and lobster... an idea whose time has come.
