Momofuku Shoto Adds a la Carte Menu; Jamie Oliver Needs Investors

And food entrepreneurs can apply for the 2015 FOOD-X accelerator.


TORONTO— After debuting as a tasting-menu-only restaurant, Shoto — one of the Momofuku empire's four concepts in Toronto — is launching an a la carte menu, available only during mid-week. According to an announcement, the new menu will feature "dishes only previously available through our set menu," as well as new items cooked up by Shoto's chef de cuisine. The a la carte option launches February 10 and will be available Tuesday through Thursday each week; more information here. [EaterWire]

CELEBRITY CHEFS— World-saving chef Jamie Oliver apparently needs a financial boost: The New York Times reports that after a late-2014 attempt to drum up investor interest, the Oliver group has now hired a "boutique investment group" to help sell a minority stake in the company. The sale hopes to raise an additional $76 million. [NYT]

FOOD-X will select 10 to 12 food start-ups for its 14-week incubator program, which promises to empower business owners through funding, coaching sessions, and networking opportunities. Applications will be taken through February 28; more information here. [EaterWire]
