Somebody Help This Poor Girl: Name of Wine Bar

She’s a nostalgic gal with a bad case of brain freeze. Hear her cry:

Hi Nancy, I am on the hunt for the name of a bar that used to be located on lower Greenville Ave past the Ross Ave split. It existed in the late 80s early 90s. It was across the street from the Sears. I remember it was a wine bar and you could order plates of cheeses. Anyway, my husband handed me your email address because I am racking my brain trying to remember the name. I apologize for wasting your time.

Waste away…

  1. I miss Flip’s–first date with my husband included dinner at Flip’s (circa July 1992). I was addicted to the Garden Hamlet pizza! And I second the nostalgia for Loma Luna–the pinion fireplace and the stacked blue corn enchiladas (original location on Lomo Alto, not the Preston Center reincarnation).

  2. My husband and I ate at Flips when we first started dating more than 20 years ago. Fun place. I remember having black bean soup, and our waiter was oh so cool.

  3. Was Flip’s the place with the crazy tables that doubled as “artwork”? I loved that place…except for the table that had half-eaten food in it. That one was gross.

  4. Ah yes, Flips!! Home of the great late night $5 lasagna plate (a great 12 a.m. snack!). Gotta love a man who named his daughter “Bluebell” and erected the 20 foot high sculpture outside made of the blue plastic spheres in her honor!!.
    Rumor was JJ San Filippo had gone wandering the globe to become a blacksmith but luck would have him still in Dallas and doing something very eccentric!!:
