From All Hip Hop: Straits Atlanta, the Asian fusion restaurant owned by rapper Ludacris, is closing its doors after four years of operations. Located in midtown Atlanta, the restaurant featured a blend of Asian cuisine by restaurateur, Chris Yeo, who owns five other restaurants, none of which are being affected by the closure.
Featuring signature dishes like Kung Pow Lollipops, a delicious hand-held chicken dish, Straits, despite its celebrated entrees and celebrity owner, suffered from low-guest turnout, perhaps due to the high-priced menu that somewhat excluded Ludacris’ hometown, urban fan base.
The rapper’s latest venture, Chicken N Beer, a new restaurant located in the newly-expanded Hartsfield-Jackson Airport in Atlanta, serves “comfort foods and craft beers using locally-grown ingredients.” “As I continue to learn and evolve as a businessman, I am extremely excited to put my restaurateur footprint into a new venture inside the busiest international airport in the United States, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport,” Ludacris stated.
