The Nashe Scott Firm

Keepng things running smoothly has become  Nashe’ C. Scott’s trademark. As general manager of Straits, the boutique fine dining experience from platinum rapper and budding thespian Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, Scott was largely responsible for the numerous accolades the posh and contemporary restaurant has received.

Reid, decorated boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr and Black Eyed Peas frontwoman Fergie, among many others. Because of their status, the needs of these customers differ from those of other diners and Scott has proven more than adept at managing both expectations, ensuring quality and outstanding experiences for all.

Distinguished leadership there led to Scott’s Position as General Manager of Straits.
