Flipside - Fairfield, CT

I saw a sign for Flipside - a burger place - on the Post Rd in the old Flying Dish location. It isn't open yet but I can't find a website or any info. Does anyone know anything about it?

  1. Do not know anything about it but will try to find out.
    Hope that whatever goes in there is better than Flying Dish-IMHO not a very good place....

    1. I'm very interested in trying Flipside Burger! I hear that it is scheduled to open at the end of the month. Hopefully it'll be better than Flying Dish!

        I had never been to flying dish but didn't really get the concept they were going with...that location is kind of tough since you can't actually see it from the road but at least Flipside put a sign up you can see when driving by. The burger joint seems to be the new thing - with Fraiche now calling themselves a burger place and opening their place in bridgeport. Hoepfully it will work - I do love burgers!

          I don't think the original Fraiche is calling themselves a burger place, are they? They definitely added 3 more burgers to the menu, but their website still describes them as a "modern american seasonally inspired" restaurant. They did open the new burger place in fairfield though...has anyone been? They do make a good burger...

            i went to the farmers market at Greenfield Hill and I believe the sign at Fraiche had the word burger in it but can't remember exactly. I thought it was weird but I'm not sure what they are doing. I have not been to the burger place but I believe it is in Bridgeport not Fairfield.

              You are correct, the Fraiche Burger is in Bridgeport...I must have had a brain cramp!

                i just found this info on Flipside:

                Flipside Burgers is scheduled to open September 1st, in the former Flying Dish space (which has been redesigned and redecorated). This new burger joint looks to be a great place to grab a burger alone or with the kids, but without feeling like you're eating at a chain. The chef/owner also owns Mediterranean Grill in Wilton.

                1. re: foleyd7

                  I think that Flying Dish tried to do too much. It looked sort of like a chain restaurant inside. They wanted to do all organic and such, but did not stick with one style of cuisine. I believe they also had happy hour and a little bar, but not somewhere I would want to go sit and drink. Anyway, I'm glad that Flipside has a nice sign on the Post Road. Does anyone know anything more about Molto? Wasn't Obika supposed to go in there originally?

                  Just curious as to how good is Fraiche Burger in the Bridgeport location...I have never been and want to try it.

                  1. re: foodieinct

                    We've never been to Fraiche Burger, but the burgers at Fraiche Restaurant in Fairfield are very good. I don't think I'd go back to the restaurant, but I'd definitely give the burger place a try.

                    1. re: foodieinct

                      drove by once with the intention of going but it looks (at least from the outside) like fast food.

                      1. re: Ima Foodie

                        I don't think it's fast food...sounds like they have a variety of burgers, salmon burgers, cuban sandwiches, fries, etc.
                        Saw this little blurb, but haven't found a full menu yet...

                        1. re: sibeats

                          thanks - article refers to it as a "takeout" place so that explains why it's counter service.
