From Philippe Starck:
A cantine designed by Philippe Starck has opened in the Saint Ouen flea market in Paris.
Led by restaurateurs Philippe & Fabienne Amzalak and in the kitchen chef Yannick Papin, Ma Cocotte (“sweetheart” in french) is a 250-seat restaurant located between an industrial style loft and two terraces located on the Serpette and Paul Bert markets.
A fan of flea markets and antique shops, Philippe Starck has always dreamed of doing the same. With this restaurant he realized a childhood dream,
“Ma Cocotte is not a restaurant, it’s a bowl. A bowl of hot soup, a bowl of steaming coffee, a bowl of fragrant tea, a bowl of mulled wine … Ma Cocotte is there on a beautiful winter morning, it is fire, open arms welcoming to warm your heart and body. That’s all, but it’s a lot. Welcome home.” – Philippe Starck
