Officially open for business!
Stevie J (real name Steven Jordan) and Benzino (real name Raymond Scott) have parlayed their reality TV careers into a new hustle.
“Sleazy & Zino Bistro & Bar” serves as a primary featured location for the third season of the VH1 smash hit TV series, “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta.” It is an upscale facility with a themed style approach, where the food and drink menus tie into characters and other elements associated with the show. Serving its signature creole infused southern dishes, guests can expect a full menu including sweet onion shrimp infused grits, crawfish jambalaya, lobster guacamole dip, and their renowned peach bbq fried lobster tails, all freshly prepared on-premise. The approachable menu is designed to appeal to a diverse, yet social audience.
Last night, the restaurant hosted a grand opening, with the Jasmine BRAND correspondents present. Taped live for VH1 viewers, the evening featured a live performance by Stevie J. and Benzino’s twelve piece band – The Magnificent 757s, along with Love & Hip Hop Atlanta cast members Momma Dee, Erica Dixon, Karlie Redd, Joseline Hernandez, Kirk Frost, newbie Tammy Rivera and Benzino’s new girlfriend, Althea.
We also spotted Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Kandi Burruss, Fashion Queens Derek J, Big Tigger, Braxton Family Values’ Towand Braxton and a few other familiar faces. Check out photos from the event and click here to get the scoop about the unfortunate brawl that went down during the event.
