Jake Gyllenhaal: Not restaurant shopping after all?
While reporting an article on celebrity restaurants for Variety's upcoming Inside L.A. issue, I thought I should check out a slew of reports in late April that foodie Jake Gyllenhaal, who seems to spend most of his time in L.A. grazing at Joan's on Third and M Cafe de Chaya, was planning on opening an organic restaurant. The reports had him shopping for locations to go into business with his friend Chris Fischer, a chef at Babbo in New York, and even researching menu ideas on a bike trip of Tuscany with Reese Witherspoon. But his publicist Mara Buxbaum says there's absolutely nothing to that report, which was completely false. Ok, thanks for clearing that up, but if he changes his mind, can I come to the opening party, please?
