My boyfriend celebrated our 3 year anniversay here when we were in town for the weekend. It was highly recommended by our hotel concierge and several other people. This is a really cool, trendy Asian Fusion restaurant and it was everything we expected. We had a 9:00 reservation on a Sunday night and it was packed! We were seated right away in the main downtstairs area just feet away from the big Budda statue. I had a chicken dish and my boyfriend had one of the beef dishes and we had the lobster spring rolls to start...all were amazing. It was kind of similar to PF Changs...but much nicer and much more expensive. We had champagne and wine and the service was good. The restaurant has a big bar area with tons of seating...almost looks like a club. The dining are consists of a big open room with high ceilings, the walls are lined with bigger table and couches and there is an upstairs area. At the far end of the restaurant is an ENORMOUS budda statue that was pretty cool. The muic was loud but that goes with the ambiance of the restaurant. Definitely a very upscale, trendy place to go. We even saw the wrestler, Chuck Lidell, there with a big group. I managed to get a picture of the top of his head from upstairs :) This is a place that would be great for a birthday celebration or a place to go before a night out...the loud music and ambiance definitely get you in the mood for a long night out!

I won't lie, I was apprehensive when I walked into the uber-hip diner/night club. It seemed too focused on image, but as it turns out, they're equally focused on making amazing food. I ordered the chicken sandwich because I'd already eaten 1 brunch that day. That was seriously the best sandwich of my life. I got it without cheese and with guacamole. It's fine without the guac, but the way it mixes with the flavor of the red pepper aioli was absolutely incredible. Excellent bread pudding and brownie sundae. My jaded ruby cocktail was just eh. I've definitely had better.

Hit up Flip for lunch today with Katie W. The hotness hasn't worn off as the parking lot was full at 11:45 am. We were seated at the bar immediately and the service was pretty quick. The atmosphere was even more casual than I had imagined. Breakfast Burger - bentons bacon + country ham | sausage gravy | maple foam - I don't eat seafood so several of the menu choices are out for me. I'm typically not very adventurous and was going to just get the Flip burger, but I thought what the hell and went with the breakfast burger. I found it to be very tasty. I don't know if it was the sausage gravy or the burger itself, but there was a nice spice that lingered on your palate for a while. This was offset by the sweetness of the maple foam. Very juicy.The consistancy was a bit looser than a typical beef burger, but the patty didn't fall apart. Messy, but really good. Fries - really good fries. Nice and crispy on the outside. I didn't find them overly greasy (they are fries though) Sweet potato tots - I'm not sure how I feel about these. My first one I found a bit bland, but actually likes them a bit better after they cooled off a bit. Definitely could have used a dash of salt, but none was to be found on the bar. The crispier ones were better. The texture on the inside was not what I expected (neither good nor bad) Krispy Kreme Shake - very good, very sweet. I think a half sized one would have been sufficient. It is just like drinking a doughnut While not a cheap meal, I certainly found my experience enjoyable. The size of the burgers is a bit on the small side (especially for the price) but it was plenty of food for me with the sides and shake (I actually had some leftover). Certainly a nice change of pace.
