It has come to light that beloved rapper Despot is getting into the restaurant game. Alongside some other New York friends, Despot is helping open up a Jewish deli in Brooklyn.
The spot is called Frankel's. It's a homage to classic Brooklyn Jewish delis and it's the brainchild of Holy Ghost's Alex Frankel and his brother Zach, FirstWeFeast reports. Alongside Despot who's involved as a part owner, they've enlisted some heavy hitters. Grub Street reported they hired former Food Network kitchen chef Ashely Berman as executive chef. Run the Jewels El-P also revealed today he is a part-owner and judging from his fiery Twitter PR, he's involved in a big way.
Frankel's opens today in Brooklyn's Greenpoint neighbourhood.
