Ludacris hits up this French restaurant for date night in Atlanta

Atlanta rapper/actor Ludacris added "restaurateur" to his resume again late last year with the opening of his Chicken + Beer at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport , (he also previously owned Straits in Midtown , which closed in 2012). But that doesn't mean he's stopped taking advantage of Atlanta's other culinary offerings.

The "Fast & Furious" star talked about his favorite local restaurants with food website Delish, including where he goes for date night with wife Eudoxie Mbouguiengue.

"My wife speaks French, and she loves it there," Luda said of Le Bilboquet, the French spot in Shops Buckhead Atlanta .

Other spots Ludacris highlights include Holeman + Finch for burgers, Spondivits for crab legs and old standby Nino's for Italian food .

"A lot of people don't know about Nino's, but it's so good," he told Delish. "I tell them to make me chicken alfredo and chicken Parmesan."

He shouted out Magic City as his favorite Atlanta strip club and gave a nod to the chicken and waffles at Chicken + Beer as one of his favorite guilty pleasures.

Delish also discussed his workout routine, what he eats in a normal day and the treats he looks forward to on the "Fast & Furious" set. Read the whole interview here.
