The rapper Ludacris has opened a Chicken+Beer restaurant at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. Chris “Ludacris” Bridges is from the city, and the restaurant gets its name from his third studio album which was released in 2003.
The southern comfort food and beer restaurant is located in the airport’s Concourse D, and it includes menu items like Battered Catfish with Corn Edamame Succotash and Parsnip Puree, and Luda’s Chicken and Pecan Waffles with whiskey maple syrup and andouille sausage. The beer served there will all be local from popular Georgia brewing companies like Sweetwater and Terrapin.
Jackmont Hospitality co-founder and CEO Daniel Halpern released a statement about the new restaurant.
“For over 20 years, the Jackmont Hospitality name has been synonymous with delicious food, warm hospitality and a steadfast commitment to excellence. Chris is the quintessential advocate for Atlanta’s rich culture and together we aim to introduce Chicken+Beer as a reflection of the city’s character.”
