Real Housewives of Atlanta (RHOA) star Kandi Burruss and her husband, producer Todd Tucker, are again diving into the restaurant industry with their upcoming restaurant Blaze Steak & Seafood in Atlanta, Georgia, which they affectionately named after their youngest daughter, 8-month-old Blaze Tucker.

I live in Southwest Atlanta and always asked why we don’t have certain restaurants in our area (Black Area). But I’m not asking any more! I will build what we want and what we need in our communities! They better not let me figure out how to build my own grocery store! #blackowned #buytheblock #liveinourcommunity #
Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker share Blaze Tucker, the adorable namesake of their new restaurant that they welcomed via surrogate, along with their 4-year-old Ace Tucker. They also have children from previous relationships: Kandi’s 17-year-old daughter Riley Burruss and Todd’s 23-year-old daughter Kaela Tucker.
As RHOA fans know, Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker are no strangers to the restaurant business, as they founded their southern eatery Old Lady Gang in 2016, which has since expanded to three locations in Georgia: Camp Creek Marketplace, Castleberry Market, and State Farm Arena, home of the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks. Todd took to Instagram to announce Blaze Steak & Seafood, posting a picture of the restaurant. He captioned the post:
“I live in Southwest Atlanta and always asked why we don’t have certain restaurants in our area (Black Area). But I’m not asking anymore!

In July, Todd Tucker gave a tour of Blaze Steak and Seafood while it was still under construction. “This is southwest Atlanta. This is where the who’s who of Atlanta grew up, lived, came from, part of; they’re still a part of the neighborhood and part of the community,” says Tucker. “We’re part of the community, we live in the community, and it’s such a blessing to be able to open up something on this side of town. It’s gonna be dope.”
