CLOSED Bibi’s Burger Bar Replacing Flipside Burgers

Santa Rosa Burgers: Bibi's Burger Bar replacing Flipside



Flipside Burgers and Wings is dead. Long live Bibi’s Burger Bar!

The downtown Santa Rosa burger spot formerly owned by restaurateur Nino Rabbaa was purchased by Sonu Chandi, of Stout Brothers in late 2015 and as of Feb. 21, 2016 served its last burger. Until March 2, when it re-opens as Bibi’s Burger Bar (630 Third St., Santa Rosa).

Here’s why we’re especially excited: Top local chefs Ben Davies (Petite Syrah, Spoonbar, Mirepoix) and Bruce Frieseke (Applewood, Bella Vineyards) are behind theĀ opening menu, which means (hopefully) we’re in for theĀ chef-driven burger experience downtown has long needed. Long. Needed.

Frieske is also the opening chef for Chandi’s other new soon-to-launch downtown restaurant venture, Craft 535 Kitchen + Bar in the former Caffe Portofino on Fourth St.

The burger restaurant lcoation, next to Third Street Aleworks, has always been a night-time hotspot, if for no other reason than its proximity to downtown entertainment and full bar. If the food could live up to the prime real estate, there’s little doubt it will be a knock-out.

More details as opening gets closer.

  1. I’ll be there with bells on! I’m worried about pricing though. I’ve said it before, anyone can make a memorable $24 burger, but it takes talent to make a memorable $12 one. I hope the pricing is more Santa Rosa than San Francisco.

  2. Please Lord please! I hope this means great meat, wonderful fixins, awesome service in a clean establishment with some funky, fun embellishments.PLEASE OMG
