Celebrities have had a spotty past opening restaurants in metro Atlanta -- for every Gunshow from former “Top Chef” contestant Kevin Gillespie or “Old Lady Gang” from “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kandi Burruss, there’s an Emeril’s from Emeril Lagasse, he of “Bam!” celebrity chef fame or a Scales 925 from Atlanta rapper T.I.

Take a look through the gallery above to see how many celebrity restaurants you’ve tried, and which ones have closed their doors. 

More to come: 

•“Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” stars Rasheeda and Kirk Frost are slated to open a restaurant and lounge in Castleberry Hill.

•“Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Cynthia Bailey is set to open Bailey Wine Cellar in Grant Park.

•Mark and Donnie Wahlberg-owned Wahlburgers is expected to open at least two more metro Atlanta locations.
