Rapper T.I. is jumping into the restaurant business and investing in historic downtown Atlanta. Atlanta is going through a really cool revitalization and the announcement of TI’s new restaurant is a welcome addition. TI is my absolute favorite rapper and I can’t wait to check out his new restaurant. According to FreddyO.com the rapper is opening an upscale soul food restaurant in a prominent building located in downtown Atlanta.
As a native of Atlanta; I am so excited about the facelift downtown Atlanta is undergoing. In the past five years under the leadership of Mayor Kasim Reed; Atlanta is moving in a positive direction. Downtown Atlanta looks like a different place with its brand new condos, scrumptious restaurants, luxurious boutiques, and the new dominant presence of Georgia State University. The city’s new street car is an exciting new addition and a great way to allow residents of the city to enjoy the hot spots of Atlanta with ease and efficiency.
Downtown Atlanta is full of entertainment these days with the introduction of the The World of Coca Cola, The Civil Rights Museum, The Madame CJ Walker Museum, then there’s The Georgia Aquarium fascinating water lovers of the southeast.
T.I. is making an investment that is sure to pay off. Downtown Atlanta is undergoing a sort of Renaissance; the city was pretty much abandoned by businesses years ago for the suburban communities and their malls. Hopefully Downtown Atlanta will look like the city my grandmothers used to spend their Saturdays shopping for pretty dresses and running errands. According to FreddyO,
“The renovation and refurbishing process of the landmark property is well underway, as plans for the new upscale Southern cuisine restaurant unfolds. An official announcement, sharing complete details is planned for the coming weeks.”
As a foodie and lover of all things ATLANTA; I can’t wait for the grand opening of T.I.’s new restaurant. It gives me a reason to buy a new dress!
