So So Closed


Cafe Dupri, super producer Jermaine Dupri's ode to Applebees (or was it Friday's?) closed recently. Turns out that his So So Def Omelet and Triple Platinum Pancakes sold about as many units as girlfriend Janet Jackson's latest release, Discipline. Making a bad situation even worse, all the employees were stiffed on their final paycheck. Reports are that JD's Mom, the "CEO" of the restaurant, said something like "maybe if they all worked harder, we wouldn't have had to close." Seriously.

On a personal note, I ate breakfast at Cafe Dupri on the morning of my wedding, making it my "final meal" as a single guy. The eggs were so so. They were not def, unfortunately.

My fave was the "Make it (G)rain" cereal and fruit plate.

Weird, I thought since Money Ain't A Thang it really wouldn't matter how well the restaurant did.

"The After Party" was definitely on my toilet in the hotel room. Not such a great dish either.

I bet Da Brat would prefer that to the food in the poke though.

I was particularly fond of Da Brat-wurst.

I knew that place was in trouble when the chef came out personally to greet us.
