|Chef Roble showing off his skills at Avenue|
Good News Atlanta! Chef Roblé Ali is coming to town! Bleezie will be hitting the ATL on the 27th to spend a few days in Atlanta. According to the twitter buzz, Bravo’s newest celebrity chef is coming to down to open a place down here! He hasn’t spilled the tea on what sort of place he is opening or what his role will be. The restaurant business in Atlanta is tough! Celebrity backed restaurant’s don’t generally fare well. However, Bleezy is a chef whose business is food, not a musician who thinks a chicken and waffle joint might diversify his portfolio.
In addition to his Bravo show Roble & Co. Roblé is also the consulting chef at Avenue an upscale gastro-lounge in New York. Clearly he has lots of pots on the burners already. His sister Jasmine was living in Atlanta prior to heading up to NYC to do the event planning for his catering company. Perhaps she will have a role in the new venture? I hope if he is going to open a place down here it’s got Somalian food on the menu! Something tells me whatever he opens, he won’t be in the kitchen full-time. He’s got way too much going on! He mentioned tonight he was thinking about hosting a party. Story developing… as TMZ would say. 🙂 I’ll let you know whatever is worth knowing. 🙂
