According to the documentary Eat This New York, 80 percent of New York restaurants will close within five years of opening. Will Scott Disick's new eatery be another statistic?
According to The National Enquirer, Kourtney Kardashian's baby daddy's new Japanese restaurant, RYU, has only been getting "negative feedback" since opening in April. And Kourtney is "so frustrated with the bad reviews that she is pushing Scott to ditch the restaurant before it causes a huge embarrassment for the family."
"Scott always comes up with different business conÂcepts that never pan out, and Kourtney is tired of it. ... Kourtney would like him to go into real estate, but for now he's taking the lazy route by making money as a reality star. And he was hoping his fame would make RYU a success, but it hasn't worked out that way," an "insider" tells the mag.
So making money as a reality star is good enough for the Kardashian-Jenners, but for Scott it's just being "lazy"? Nice. The Enquirer's source also says that Scott would like to go into fashion "but can't find anyone to work with him." Uh, what about Kanye West? He has his own line.
RYU has only been open for three months, so maybe Scott's crew is just working out the early kinks. But the restaurant business is hard -- and Scott being based 3,000 miles away can't help matters. Given that about a quarter of all new eateries close within their first year, maybe he should have opened a restaurant in Los Angeles instead, so he could be more hands-on and learn more about the business before attempting to open a place in a tough market like New York.
What do you think? Is Scott Disick being "lazy" by just being a reality star? Should Kourtney Kardashian be worried about his motivation? Sound off in the comments!
