Today I am talking about my very favourite place to eat when shopping at the Paris flea market … Ma Cocotte.
The restaurant opened two years ago, and is masterfully designed by French creator Philippe Starck. The style is a wonderfully chic, relaxed, comfortable mix of vintage and new. It feels distinctly French, and that impression is reinforced by the menu of very traditional French food.
Stopping here for a weekend lunch is more than just finding somewhere to eat, it is immersing yourself in a lively Parisian atmosphere, where clients and vendors from all over the flea market come together for the shared pleasure of a wonderful meal in a fantastic decor. This is the place for a family dinner, for a long long lunch with a girlfriend, for a moment of respite after a hard day shopping.
And because this is the restaurant I stop off at after a long shop with a girlfriend, it is also the place I have chosen to finish my September brocante tour this year. After five days hunting down treasure in Paris and Normandy, we enjoy the last morning together at the Paris flea market, and share a farewell meal here. I’m hoping that my guests will not only love the décor, they will also adore the delicious French food.
