The Flipside Restaurant | Rock Hill, South Carolina

Once a trauma surgeon student, Chef Amy Fortes, eventually learned that her true passion was not in the operating room, but in the kitchen. After taking a break from studying medicine, Fortes began working at a few restaurants in her hometown of Lockport, New York – just outside of Buffalo. Quickly falling in love with the camaraderie within the culinary industry, Chef Fortes changed her major, and the rest is history. Now the co-owner and chef of The Flipside Restaurant, The Flipside Café, and The Flipside Catering Company in Rock Hill and Fort Mill, she thrives on the relationships between great food and great people.
