Yesterday Ludacris announced via the @StraitsATL twitter account that " Straits Atlanta will not be open this week for New Year renovations... Sorry for the inconvenience..." and minutes later (via his personal @Ludacris account) announced that he had won contract to open a restaurant at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. While at time time it seemed both would be open, I received the confirmation that the airport eatery will actually be in place of the midtown restaurant.
Chicken & Beer, a restaurant that will feature "comfort food and craft beers" will open on Concourse D of the airport and is presumably named for the rapper's 2003 studio album "Chicken-n-Beer.
What do you think of this move? Is Ludacris the right guy with the right concept at the right place, or out of place again? Will this restaurant become an Atlanta landmark like the Varsity? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
