Many young chefs have ‘graduated’ from Michelin restaurants and set up their own restaurants in Paris recently. Most of them attract customers with their friendly atmosphere and pricing, counting La Marmite as one. Its ‘Menu Crises’ fulfils a gap between fine dining and fast food. Its head chef Renaud Marin was born in a village in Antibes, southern France. He started cooking at the age of fifteen, previously worked at Michelin restaurant inside La Bastide St Antoine hotel and Le Bristol in Paris. Philippe Orrico worked under Pierre Gagnaire, founder of Pierre at Mandarin Oriental Hotel. La Marmite offers a traditional flavour, its ‘Paris-Brest’ is a classic sweet snack first made by Louis Durand in 1910. Created for the Paris bike race, it is shaped like a wheel. One hundred years on, it is now a delicious classic.
