Jake Gyllenhaal to follow in Richard Gere’s restaurateuring footsteps

Celebrity restaurants are nothing new. But celebrity organic restaurants, now they’re all the rage. tjndc5-5b5eietogkwywerpezi_layout.jpgNow that Pound Ridge’s Richard Gere’s has unveiled phase one of his Bedford Post dining destination, and Sandra Bullock showed Oprah biodegradable utensils and sugar-cane take-out containers at her restaurant (Austin’s Bess Bistro), it looks like Jake Gyllenhaal is ready to get on the organic express, too. According to Ecorazzi (hey, clever name!), the 27-year-old is teaming with chef Chris Fischer, a childhood friend, to open their own place in L.A. Also, the story adds that Gyllenhaal might be planning a cycling trip to Tuscany with girlfriend Reese Witherspoon to help develop ideas for the menu.
