New word from industry insiders: While the rooftop patio at HD1 is still set to happen, the "haute dog" restaurant from Richard Blais and Barry Mills will apparently rebrand and reopen as a Flip Burger Boutique when renovations are complete. Flip currently has locations in West Midtown, Buckhead, and Birmingham.
According to tipsters, HD1 isn't doing as well as its burger-themed counterpart, also created by Blais, and investors are hoping that the concept switch will bring in more people. Rumor also has it that plans for the swap have already been drawn up, but we all know things can change, so do visit the tipline or leave a comment with inside information or any thoughts.
