Everybody Wins in the Burger Wars

Richard Blais, Blais, Flip, Flip Burger Flip Burger Boutique, Atlanta, hamburger, chef, cheeseburger, top chef, celebrity chef, Shaun Doty, Yeah Burger, Manuel's Tavern, Highland Avenue, Krispy Kreme milkshake

Richard Blais has brought Flip Burger Boutique to Poncey-Highland.

I love a good cheeseburger. And I’m in the right neighborhood, with Manuel’s Tavern, George’s and Yeah! Burger (from Shaun Doty). Now comes celebrity chef Richard Blais (a “Top Chef” winner) with his third local Flip Burger spot, where his HD 1 hot dog emporium previously tried to bring the fabulous to the weiner. (Results: Eh… Sometimes a hot dog is just a hot dog.) I stopped in last night and totally greased down on the fried chicken burger, killer fries and signature Krispy Kreme milkshake, about which I have one word: miraculous.

Flip Burger Boutique, 644 N. Highland Ave., just off Ponce. Where San Francisco Coffee was until it moved two doors down.
