Chef Greg Marchand speaks to the Associated Press during an interview in his restaurant Frenchie in Paris on Thursday, Feb. 13, 2014. "A lot of young chefs - I'm part of it - open a restaurant with no investor, so with not much money. It's often small places, with no designer work because they cannot afford it.

For the many who are shut out of the restaurant, he has a cookbook coming out in March. (AP Photo/Michel Euler)
