Ludacris closes Straits

    Ludacris is shutting the doors of his Atlanta restaurant Straits after four years in business.

    The Atlanta rapper announced this week that he’s closing up shop at Straits in order to cater to weary travelers.

    "As I continue to learn and evolve as a businessman," he said in a statement, "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."

    Luda’s new spot, located in Concourse D of the airport, will be dubbed Chicken N Beer after his 2003 album. He recently tweeted about the chicken shack, but he didn’t reveal that he would be trading in one restaurant for another.

    For Luda, the Asian-fusion eatery is a launching pad for his new venture. "Straits was a great segue into the industry and with Chicken N Beer I can create my own concept," he said. "I look forward to expanding my creativity and driving to a much higher plane."

    Aside from chicken, Chicken N Beer will serve comfort foods and beers crafted from locally grown ingredients.
