Sean “Diddy” Combs Closes New York Restaurant
Music and clothing mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs has officially closed his New York restaurant Justin’s after 10 years in business. According to a statement from a Bad Boy representative to AOL’s Black Voices, Diddy is looking to expand and relocate the business to a different location in the city. “Bad Boy is seeking a larger footprint for the restaurant in the New York City area, as the size and location of the restaurant no longer fit the Justin’s brand,” the statement said. “The company sees the larger Justin’s Restaurant in Atlanta, which takes up most of a city block, as the prototype for the new New York City location. Bad Boy representatives are evaluating a number of options for a larger space in some of New York City’s prime traffic areas.” Combs launched Justin’s, which is named after his first son, in 1997. In 1998, he followed up with the Atlanta location, which is still open for business at 2200 Peachtree Rd.
