Jonathan Cheban is staying busy in the food business!

The reality star and entrepreneur, as well as self-professed "foodie" tells Us Weekly about his plans to open two new restaurants.

"The first one I'm doing is, Sushi Couture, I'm opening it on Ocean Drive in Miami outside The Victor Hotel in about two months," Kim Kardashian's best friend reveals. "The other place is called Burger Bandit, and the first will be in Lynbrook, Long Island. We are opening that in July and it will become a franchise."

Cheban, who also recently launched a Glam Screen mirror and screen protector for iPhone as well as lifestyle website TheDishh.com, admits he is particular about food.

"I am the Kanye West of food," Cheban says. "Everything is perfect and top notch. Nobody can match me with knowing about food. I'm the king of food, I eat out 3 to 4 meals a day"

The comparison is a compliment for his BFF's fiancé—and the former Spin Crowd star admits it's a challenge finding a wedding gift for the rapper.

"Kanye is so difficult because he is so particular and perfect I would never want to be not cool with his taste cause his taste is like superb, I love his whole style. Everything he does is so perfect and top notch it has to be well thought out."

But once the big day (May 24) is over, Cheban has something else to look forward to: filming Kourtney and Khloe Take the Hamptons.

"It's so exciting it's a much more exciting summer now," he says. "The Hamptons were dead, like to the point where I go in for a day and leave, so for me it's exciting to have them out there and Kim out there. The Hamptons needs it. It's like a flat line out there, it use to be much more fun and exciting."
