“La Cantine
de Nantes”

Nestled on the banks of the Loire, this ephemeral canteen offered a single fixed menu that was simple and delicious.

It was a convivial place that could hold quite a few people (capacity for 300!). The interior was designed by two particularly creative Dutch designers: Kia Kubic and Douwe Hoekstra – it is worthy to note that Hoekstra works for Atelier Van Lieshout (L’Absence).

For the Cantine de Nantes they also imagined a custom-built spit roast and state-of-the-art barbecues to cook chicken and other poultry, whole hams, or fish skewers – depending on what was available at the farmer’s markets. It was also a place to relax: petanque terrains and table football were available for free!
