N.Y.’s Chang Prepares for T.O.


TORONTO — New York chef David Chang continues to open up about his Toronto restaurant plans.

Chang, owner of N.Y. restos Momofuku and Mà Pêche, is launching two restaurants beside the city’s Shangri-La Hotel in 2012. One will be modelled after his Momofuku noodle bar, and the other will be called Momofuku Daisho. And, according to a recent Star report, he has plans to open a bar, too.

As to why Chang chose the Big Smoke, he told The Globe the city seems welcoming. “Running a business anywhere isn’t easy,” the chef told the paper. “I’m not saying it’s easy in Toronto. It just seems to be more welcoming and there’s space to do things.”
