Kim Kardashian’s BFF Jonathan Cheban: “I’m the Kanye West of Food”
Kim Kardashian’s bestie, Jonathan Cheban, may have gone through a breakuprecently, but it looks like he’s married to his work these days. According to the reality star and businessman himself, he has two new restaurants in the works.
"The first one I'm doing is, Sushi Couture, I'm opening it on Ocean Drive in Miami outside The Victor Hotel in about two months," Kim’s foodie BFF tells Us Weekly. "The other place is called Burger Bandit, and the first will be in Lynbrook, Long Island. We are opening that in July and it will become a franchise." Hmm. If that concept takes off, it sounds like we all could be eating in one of Jonathan’s eateries soon.
This isn’t Jonathan’s first foray into the restaurant business. Last year he opened another Miami-based sushi restaurant, Sushi Mikasa. The entrepreneur clearly has a big love of the culinary arts, with a high standard of excellence. In fact, he even went so far as to describe himself as “the Kanye West of food.”
Well, if we were to name the Kanye of the culinary world, we think we might go for someone a little more high-strung... like Gordon Ramsay. However, what Jonathan means is that they share an uncompromising attitude. “Everything is perfect and top notch,” he explains. “Nobody can match me with knowing about food. I’m the king of food. I eat out 3 to 4 meals a day.”
Well, anyone who’s ever glanced at Jonathan’s Instagram can probably vouch for that. Just scrolling through his feed will make our tummies growl.
