Another Black celebrity has been denied entry into a pricey restaurant in Atlanta because of a dress code “violation.” Falcons defensive end Grady Jarrett claims Le Bilboquet in Buckhead turned him away last Wednesday for wearing a green Gucci tracksuit and a tennis chain, according to news reports. “It wasn’t a good feeling,” Jarrett said of the incident. “I was embarrassed.”

Retired Atlanta Hawks player Dominique Wilkins wasn’t allowed into Le Bilboquet last year for similar reasons, reports say. And former mayor of Atlanta Keisha Lance-Bottoms suffered the same fate this month at Capital Grille in Dunwoody. insider.com
