Ludacris - Ludacris Closing Georgia Restaurant

Rapper Ludacris is closing his Asian fusion restaurant in Georgia, Atlanta so he can focus his attention on his new diner project.
The Stand Up hitmaker opened Straits with his business partner Chris Yeo in 2008 but he has decided to close up shop on his first foray into the food business after winning a contract to build a new food haven, called Chicken N Beer, at the city's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
He says, "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.
"Straits was a great segue into the industry and, with Chicken N Beer, I can create my own concept. I look forward to expanding my creativity and driving to a much higher plane."
Chicken N Beer, which is a nod to the star's 2003 studio album title, Chicken-n-Beer, will serve comfort food and craft beers using locally grown ingredients. It's due to open this spring (12).
