Fundraising

Does the future of restaurant financing lie in Kickstarter? Eater National points to Travail Kitchen in Minnesota, which has managed to raise over $183,000 since Tuesday, as well as spots like Littleneck and The Musket Room that opened thanks to crowd-sourced fundraising. Restaurateurs find the promise of no-strings-attached cash appealing, but do run the risk of ending up like City Grit, which was left unfunded when it failed to reach its goal. [~EN~]
