These days, it seems like just about every celebrity has a ghost kitchen, liquor label or cookie brand. Heck, why not all three? But here’s one that caught our attention this week: Rapper Eminem is opening a restaurant called Mom’s Spaghetti in Detroit tomorrow. The name is a hilarious nod to the intro of Eminem’s 2002 megahit ‘Lose Yourself.’ You remember the one: ‘His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy. There’s vomit on his sweater already, mom’s spaghetti.’
Alright, so maybe it’s not the most appetizing reference for a restaurant name – but what did you expect from the infamously explicit lyricist? The concept got its start as a pop-up restaurant back in 2017 and was recently revived as a charitable cause that passed out free pasta meals to healthcare workers in 2020. Now, thanks to Detroit-based Union Joints restaurant group, the eatery will go brick-and-mortar.
