According to a sign fastened to the door of Newport's Flipdaddy's Brilliant Burgers & Craft Beer Bar, the restaurant has closed. 

The Greater Cincinnati-based burger chain opened its Newport location in the spring of 2015 and has two other Greater Cincinnati locations, one in Mariemont and another in Symmes Township. 

"To our valued guests, vendors and community: we appreciate all of your support, we are closed for business," the sign on the door reads.

We have reached out to both the Mariemont and Symmes Township locations to confirm whether or not they are open, and received a message the "call cannot be completed as dialed or the number has been disconnected."  

CityBeat contacted general manager Chris Anschutz for comment and have not yet received a response. We will update with new information as it is available. 

In December 2018, Flipdaddy's CEO Tom Sacco filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy (Chapter 11 lets you continue to operate while figuring out a plan to pay back creditors) and they closed their Union, Kentucky storefront in January of this year.

Flipdaddy's Brilliant Burgers & Craft Beer Bar was located at 165 Pavilion Pkwy, Newport.
