Richard Blais's flip burger coming to D.C.?

The winner of Top Chef All Stars, Richard Blais, has made plans to bring a Flip Burger to D.C., the Washington Post reports.

And Penn Quarter might be the spot.  Blais already had plans to open his store in Penn Quarter, the lease negotiations fell through.

Hopefully that means he has set is heart on our neighborhood because he says he has already signed a letter of intent for a new space (at an undisclosed location).  And he says the Flip Burger could open its doors by the end of the year.

He says the Flip Burger will establish a relationship with local farmers here and have its own flavor.  It will carry the same name, but will be different than his other Flip Burger restaurants.
