Chi-Raq Cuisines restaurant opens on Chicago's South Side

A memorable name is important for a new business. A man in Chicago's South Shore neighborhood picked one for his new eatery.

From CBS Chicago:
Chi-Raq is a controversial name for Chicago, usually associated with violence. But now, Chi-Raq is the name of a new business on Chicago's South Side.

CBS 2's Audrina Bigos went to get the story behind it and all the stir the name is causing.

Chi-Raq Cuisines isn’t getting the warmest of welcomes to the neighborhood. Some love it, and some hate it.

But all the sizzling happening inside, all the chopping, and the jerk seasoning, it's all 21-year-old Antwan Jeffries' new pride and joy.
Jeffries used to peddle drugs but he earned his GED and then went to culinary school. Good for him.

As for spelling, I don't believe the AP Stylebook has weighed in on whether there is a hyphen in Chiraq or not.

That's something AP should look into, don't you think?
