Flattops
« on: May 09, 2016, 08:18:20 AM »
I saw they put up the sign for Flattops on Ditmars.  This used to be the Sushi place.  I think this is supposed to be the place with burgers and pinball machines.  I have a feeling this will be a fun place.  I wonder when it will be open.

Knowing these guys, it will probably cost twelve dollars to play a game of pinball.

If that's the case, there won't be many pinball machine players.  I'm not paying $12 that's for sure.  I'm wondering how they will fit so many pinball machines in that small space

'cause it's cool and hip. $10 pancakes.... pinball and hamburgers.... it all makes sense homey. Stop being a reactionary luddite already!

They are really working hard in this place.  They now have red chairs and some very interesting artwork on the walls surrounded by neon lights.  It looks like it will open soon.  I'm looking forward to it.  Something different on Ditmars

I've been looking forward to an aircraft carrier themed restaurant for years.  I can't wait to wave off an approaching waitress.

Pretty small space.. take up several seats with Video games (not all pinball) and the "bar", and you have the makings of having to charge a LOT of money to make up for the lack of seating.

I walked past Flattops last night and every seat was filled.  I couldn't even get inside to get a menu.  They had some nice music playing.  I think this place will be popular.  I hope the food is good.  I'll be trying it soon.

I passed by last night also.  It was SO PACKED - it looked as though everyone was seated at one long table.  The food looked good though, looking forward to trying it once the hype dies down.

I went in to ask them for a menu and the guy told me they didn't officially open yet and that they had a soft opening.  He wasn't very friendly

It was weird.  A guy was sitting in the restaurant and I walked in and asked for a menu and he looked at me like I was bothering him and told me that they didn't open yet.  I turned around and walked right out.  They should treat potential customers nicer than that

Sounds about right. Clearly your beard is not up to snuff.
