Peter Thomas, who wed Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey on camera last year, also watched his restaurant venture The Uptown Supper Club go under. Now, things are looking up: he’s been cleared of a battery charge brought by a former employee, AND embarked on new culinary adventure this June (2011): a tapas bar and restaurant called bar ONE.
BarOne (named by Cynthia Bailey herself) features a Caribbean inspired spread of yummy sounding small plates created by chef Natasha Wong. There’s plaintains and avocados and jerk chicken aplenty (sign me up.) Below is a photo (courtesy of barONE’s FB page) of a twist of the southern comfort favorite chicken and waffles. This version features sweet potato waffles and pecan-crusted chicken fingers:
In case you’re not already enticed, the entrance features a nearly topless photo of model Cynthia Bailey (who also opened up her own modeling agency in Atlanta called The Cynthia Bailey Modeling Agency, or CBMA.).
Peter’s BarOne partner R & B artist, writer, and producer RL, and it’s endorsed by Cynthia Bailey, but unclear if she’s actually a partner in the venture. It’s located in the Grant Park area of Atlanta, and definitely looks promising!
Here’s a video of Peter Thomas behind-the-scenes preparing for BarOne’s opening:
