Ludacris, the rapper/actor, can add restaurant owner to his list of accomplishments. He will be opening an upscale restaurant, Straits Atlanta, in his hometown of Atlanta this April. His partner in this business venture is Chef Chris Yeo, who owns three Straits Restaurants in California.
Ludacris, born Chris Bridges, said:
"During my travels, I’ve experienced some of the most diverse international culinary flavors in the world. After experiencing Yeo’s modern spin on Singaporean cuisine combined with the sexy dining experience, I wanted to bring this restaurant home to Atlanta."
Ludacris and Chef Chris Yeo, who were introduced by mutual friends, plan on opening two more restaurants in the Atlanta area. [SOURCE]
