Menu Development & Menu Rebrand

Inquire about Rates

I addition to creating the menus for my own ventures, I do a wide range of restaurant consulting, including the development of new menus or a rebrand of current menus. I have developed a wide range of menus for a variety of cuisines including: Classic and modern Italian, Japanese, and Hawaiian. I will develop a well rounded menu based on your restaurants characteristics and constraints including but not limited to price/budget, food style, restaurant and kitchen size, cook experience, customer dietary needs, nutritional breakdown, and ingredient seasonality. Some current and historic menus I have developed are listed below:*

- Miss Things, Hawaiian Restaurant & Cocktail Bar, Toronto, Ontario
- Calii Love, Quick-Service Poke Restaurant, Toronto, Ontario
- Tosto, Quick Fire Pizza & Pasta, Toronto, Ontario
- ViaVai, Pizzeria and Wine Bar, Toronto, Ontario (now closed)
- Alimento Fine Food Emporium, Toronto, Ontario (now closed)

*Please note: the current menus at these locations may not reflect the menu I completed for them.
