Reality TV stars to open Black Gurl Brunch Club in College Park

Chef Lawrence Page, Ana Lavender to serve up brunch dishes and cocktails

A chef who also stars on a reality television show is bringing his brunch food to metro Atlanta. 

Chef Lawrence Page -- also known as LP the Chef -- and his wife, Ana Lavender, will celebrate the opening of their Black Gurl Brunch Club restaurant next week at 1583 Virginia Ave. in College Park. It will take over the space previously occupied by The Pig & The Pint, which closed last year.

An Eventbrite post offered reservations at the restaurant Aug. 7-9. All slots are sold out. 

Page and Lavender star on “Hustle & Soul,” a WE TV show that recently wrapped up its third season. The show follows Page as he operates his restaurant while juggling a complicated personal life.

Black Gurl Brunch Club, which started as a pop-up at Page’s Pink Teacup Villa in Miami, promises “classic southern staples innovated and seasoned to perfection,” according to its Facebook page. Expect “classic cocktails with a new spin” curated by Ana Lavender along with bottomless mimosas and breakfast cocktails.

Sample menu items include Holy Trinity Shrimp & Grits, Chicken & Waffles, LP the Chef’s Five Cheese Mac & Cheese and Vanilla Bourbon French Toast.

The AJC has reached out to Lavender for more details. 

When it officially opens, Black Gurl Brunch Club will join two other new restaurants in College Park: Virgil’s Gullah Kitchen and Bar and The Real Milk & Honey Cafe.
