Jay Z’s mum opens modest eatery serving soul food and karaoke.
You could say it’s all in the family. The “original” Mrs Carter has followed in her son Jay Z’s footsteps and gone into the hospitality business, opening a diner in New Jersey.
Gloria Carter recently opened Diamondz N Da Ruff with two pals in Newark and got a promotional boost from her son and daughter-in-law Beyoncé, who popped in for a quick 15-minute visit earlier this month.
Photos of the visit first aired on TMZ.com, amid rumours that the power couple is on the marital rocks.
“The plot thickens,” concludes the celebrity gossip site.
Unlike Jay Z’s upscale 40/40 Club in New York, a pimped up version of the traditional sports bar decked out with a crystal chandelier and stocked with bottles of Moët & Chandon, cognac and brandy, Diamondz N Da Ruff is a more modest eatery that will also host karaoke nights and “soul food Sundays”.
The menu serves classic diner fare, like chicken wings, fish sandwiches, crab cakes, salads, sliders, pancakes and eggs.
Mrs Carter isn’t the only star parent to ride the coat tails of their world famous offspring to enter the restaurant business. Lady Gaga’s father Joe Germanotta opened an Italian restaurant in New York two years ago, in memory of his late sister, called Joanne Trattoria. – AFP Relaxnews
