HD1 To Be Converted To FLIP Burger

FLIP Burger_ Interio#3DA10DConfirming rumors that have been floating for months, it was announced this morning that HD1, chef Richard Blais’ Poncey-Highland hot dog restaurant, will be converted to become the fourth FLIP burger boutique.

Of course, Blais is also the founding chef of the FLIP concept.

HD1 will close after dinner service on Sunday and the conversion is expected to take eight to ten weeks, according to co-owner Barry Mills.

A rooftop patio, originally planned for HD1, will  part of the construction.

“We are fully committed to growing the FLIP brand and expanding our strong reputation for innovative food in a high energy and fun environment. Moving forward, FLIP burger boutique will be our primary focus,” Mills said in the press release.

Fans of HD1 may be pleased to find that hot dogs will be on the menu, along with FLIP burgers and sides.

“It’s an exciting period of growth for FLIP and the demand for gourmet burgers is at an all time high,” Blais said in the press release. “At the Poncey-Highland location we will infuse our signature burgers, shakes and sides to the menu while paying homage to the best-of-the-best in HD1 hot dogs.”

The Poncey-Highland/ VaHi area really needs another burger place.

“The Poncey-Highland/ VaHi area really needs another burger place.”

I truly hope you were being sarcastic.

This is great. I’m gonna ride my jetbike there twice a week and sit on the rooftop patio wearing my Captain America costume and telling fart jokes well into the evening.
I’m sure I’ll stay until they close.
I hope the people living in the nearby homes are not bothered by all the laughter emanating from the rooftop patio as a result of my hilarious jokes.
Does anyone know if this location will allow cats? I know the one on Howell Mill, for whatever reason, does not.

I hadn’t heard that many great things about HD1, but I am a fan of the Flip in Buckhead, so I’ll def have to check out the rooftop patio if the weather in Atlanta ever gets back to normal, UGGGH!!! They also have a summer swag promotion going on till the end of this month for half off your meal. I just love a discount!
