The NME reports that Julian Casablancas is about to open a restaurant:
Julian Casablancas turns restaurateur
The Strokes’ frontman Julian Casablancas is set to open a restaurant in Los Angeles, and will DJ at the official launch tomorrow (October 13).
Really? He's opening a restaurant with the money he made from Is This It and... well, from Is This Is?
Casablancas is among a string of well-known faces to invest in the venture, including Mark Ronson, actors Gerard Butler, Danny Masterson, Chris Masterson and Laura Prepon and DJ Steve Aoki.
Ah. So he's a shareholder that just happens to be playing the opening night.
It's called Shin and its menu is Korean BBQ. Trendy BBQ joint in Hollywood with Casablancas playing records. If SlimFast could bottle that idea, they'd have the perfect appetite suppressant.
