Ludacris announced today that in April he will become a new owner of a restaurant. The new restaurant, called Straits Atlanta, will serve Singaporean cuisine in the ATL. Luda's new place will actually be the forth in the chain, the other three being owned by Luda's partner, Chef Chris Yeo. "I love Atlanta's charm, architecture, food and, most of all, the people," explained Yeo of his decision to expand his brand outside of California. "Chris Bridges’ commitment to his community and his family sealed the deal for me – this market is ideal for Straits and likewise Straits is perfect for the city."
Luda's upscale $2.7 million dollar restaurant will open in Midtown Atlanta, in a building purchased by Ludacris nearly one year ago. "During my travels, I’ve experienced some of the most diverse international culinary flavors in the world," Ludacris says. "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 Chris Yeo plan on opening two more restaurants in the Atlanta area.
