And then there was one.
Flip Burger, the upscale burger joint started by “Top Chef” alum and former Atlanta resident Richard Blais, has closed its Buckhead location at 3655 Roswell Road:
The Roswell Road closure means only the original Flip Burger on Howell Mill Road remains — the Poncey-Highland location closed in 2015.
The first Flip opened in 2008 under Richard Blais, the “Top Chef” alum who also owned Midtown restaurant The Spence before it closed in 2015. Blais moved to San Diego from Atlanta several years ago to open Juniper & Ivy.
Flip Burger operations manager and co-owner Barry Mills told the AJC in March that Blais is no longer affiliated with the eatery, though he’s still listed on its website as creative director.
The Roswell Road Flip location had been open since 2010. A Nashville location closed this year, while a Birmingham restaurant remains open.
