The Flipside Restaurant in Rock Hill and The Flipside Cafe in Fort Mill are both owned and operated by Jon Fortes and his wife Amy. Jon was a corporate chef at a big company in Charlotte for nine years. He explained it was a great company and locally sourced, but they rented venues that were so expensive that they had to pass that cost to the guest. With The Flipside Restaurant and The Flipside Cafe, Jon was able to work out deals so the rent would be less expensive and he could pass that savings to the guest while still offering delicious fresh food.Jon refers to The Flipside Restaurant as ìfarm to fork at a valueî. While they are not 100% locally sourced, they try to source as much as they can locally. If it is not local, it is sustainable, organic, hormone and antibiotic free. The Flipside Restaurant offers southern hospitality and southern food at a value. The Flipside Restaurant is open for lunch and dinner Monday through Friday and open for brunch on Saturday and Sunday. The menu changes seasonally based on the ingredients that are available locally.
