In the spring of 1987 a young pastry chef from France named Jean-Pierre Marquet opened a small, quaint patisserie on Smith Street in Brooklyn. He couldn’t help but stand out. The area, which is now packed with fancy restaurants and high end retail was at the time notorious for drugs and violence.
Within 2 years he had garnered fame with write-ups in the New York Times and lines around the block on holidays and weekends. He went on to become a restauranteur, opening the popular sports Le Barricou and Maison Premiere in Williamsburg and Mominette Bistro in Bushwick.
