Nashville, TN Edition: Flip Burger Boutique
Richard Blais owns a burger joint in Nashville called Flip Burger Boutique.
Blais, a mainstay on Bravo's Top Chef, open the burger-focused restaurant with three locations in Atlanta, one in Birmingham, and the newest location in Nashville. Flip Burger Boutique is a modern restaurant - stark white and bright red in a futuristic format - that puts a modern spin on the classic burger.
So, I went with the Butcher's Cut, which came with their signature black angus blend beef burger, emmi roth buttermilk bleu cheese, caramlized onions, soy truffle vinaigrette, frisee, pickled shallots and red wine jam. This was a pretty darn good burger. A little sour - but sweet with the jam. Good overall. A side of macaroni and cheese was good - nothing totally special but good.
And, I couldn't decide whether I wanted the nutella + burnt marshmallow or the turtle milkshake. Our waitress saw my indecisiveness and said that if we each got one, she could halve it out and we could get half of each. Definitely loved the turtle one; the nutella was a bit too chocolate overload for me.
Flip Burger is good. Is it great? I don't know. It doesn't help that I had a ton of great burgers in Nashville and that I was super full by the time I even got to dinner here. It was a good burger, and it had some great qualities. But overall, I think it was a solid B.
