Kanye the restaurateur?
From Stella's Column today:
"KANYE WEST, the Grammy Award-winning hip-hop superstar who is deep in grief over the passing of his beloved mom, Donda West, is still planning to open a chain of Fatburger eateries around the Chicago area -- one of which will soon debut in Hyde Park. He is among a few celebs such as Queen Latifah, rapper/producer Pharrell Williams, the Cincinnati Bengals' Willie Anderson and Montel Williams who are all partnering with Fatburger chairman Andy Wiederhorn. There are 91 restaurants in the popular hamburger chain that is based on the West Coast."
And speaking of West Coast outposts on the South Side, the "coming soon" signage is still up on Martin Luther King Drive in Bronzeville for a Roscoe's Chicken & Waffles. It was supposed to open last June, so what exactly is going on over there?!
