Last Friday when I was wandering around Park Slope I noticed a new sign at the corner of 7th Avenue and 9th Street. Brooklyn Flipsters? Wait...I thought that was Brooklyn Burger Bar...
Turns out Brooklyn Burger Bar, formerly Bar Minnow, is now Brooklyn Flipsters. According to the guy in the chef's coat who I spoke to outside, the place has a new owner and an all new menu and was scheduled to open Saturday, July 12th.
I haven't had a chance to try Flipsters out yet and they didn't have any menus posted at the time, but it seems like from the first two reports Flipsters early days it may be suffering from some of the same issues as Brooklyn Burger Bar.
I'm in favor of a new burger joint in the nabe and I like many of the things on their sign. Fries? Yup. Burgers? Yup. Shakes? Yup. Sundaes? Yup, like 'em, too. Our issue with Brooklyn Burger Bar was that the service was slow and the burgers while tasty were pricier and not as good as Bonnie's, Lawman's burger standby. I've been in the mood for a lamb burger and fries, ever since I saw this article on Serious Eats. If Flipsters, has a lamb burger on offer, I might have to check them out very soon...
