Well-known New York restaurant chain to come to Toronto by 2012

A world renowned chef and restaurateur may be renting out a Toronto storage unit some time soon to store his pots and pans as he plans to bring his business to the Greater Toronto area.

According to the Toronto Star, David Chang is planning on bringing his Momofuku restaurant, which has thrived in Manhattan, to the Queen City by 2012.

"I'm not trying to bring New York to Toronto," Chang told the paper. "I want to understand Toronto better."

According to the paper, many destinations around the world want him to bring his Momofuku restaurant – Japanese for "lucky peach" – to their area, but Chang says he fell in love with the Greater Toronto area after visiting last year. The Star reports plans are also in the works to bring his franchise to Australia, with doors scheduled to open there in October.

While Momofuku is new to the country, it already has some Canadian roots, as the paper reports the restaurant's culinary lab is headed by Canada's own Daniel Burns. Burns used to work with restaurateur Susur Lee in Toronto at Lee's eponymous restaurant.
