I ate at Flip - the new ulta-hip burger place - at The Summit this week. This was one of the best burgers I have ever eaten!! This is the second Flip location in the US. The original Flip is in Atlanta. Chef Richard Blais, runner-up on season 4 of Top Chef, is the mastermind behind these amazing burgers. The menu is very different from your usual buger joint - they have your basic burger (Flip Burger), Steak Tartare Burger (hold the tartare sauce), Crab Burger, Lamb Burger - you get the idea. I had the Flip Burger and fries. Michele had the Bacon Cheese Burger and vodka battered onion rings. The burgers are not as big as the "usual" burger you get in a restaurant. I thought they were the perfect size. The onion rings were light and crunchy and not the least bit greasy. The fries were topped with big kosher salt that really put them over the top. I plan on making room for a milkshake next time - they freeze the icecream with liquid nitrogen!
