2 Chainz’s restaurant fires 5 managers, passes re-inspection

A restaurant co-owned by Atlanta rapper 2 Chainz has made a comeback from a recently failed health inspection in which officials reported expired milk and raw hamburgers stored over collard greens.

Escobar Restaurant and Tapas, located in Castleberry Hill, scored a 92/A following the Monday evaluation.

The restaurant had to make “internal changes” and let five managers go after the failed inspection, Escobar spokesman Justin Andrews confirmed.

Andrews said getting a 92 during an unscheduled re-inspection “speaks to what we stand for” and shows that putting new management in place was the right move.

The eatery, co-owned by the man also known as Tauheed Epps and entrepreneur Mychel “Snoop” Dillard, opened in December

2 Chainz took to Instagram to post a picture of the new score, along with an inspirational comment, to his 3.1 million followers.

It read, in part: “Just like everything in life we had our ups and downs along the way, but we're only getting stronger & better!”

The post got more than 10,000 likes and hundreds of comments.

“I got 11 years kitchen experience I've done incredible things. If you're ever looking for a great chef to run your restaurant get at me,” replied one job seeker.

No word on whether 2 Chainz took the Instagrammer up on the offer.
