Ayesha Curry Is Teaming Up with a Superstar Chef for a New Gourmet BBQ Joint
She did a pop-up restaurant in the past, and now it seems Ayesha Curry is ready for the big leagues, squaring up with Michael Mina to open a SF-area BBQ restaurant for good. It will be called International Smoke, and if all goes as planned, as it rarely does in the restaurant business, it will be open mid-summer.
While the food will remain a question mark, the brand power of both Curry and Mina is enough to get people talking. Curry’s appeared on the Food Network countless times, and Mina’s got high-end restaurants all over the U.S.
Will this be enough for the public to get past their distaste for celebrity restaurants? Something tells me if the food’s good, and Steph shows up with his teammates regularly, this could be a pretty lucrative venture for all involved.
