A New Restaurant Makes the 8th Arrondissement Even Trendier
A curious new restaurant has just opened up in the 8th arrondissement, and guests staying at one of the Sister Hotels Champs-Elysées are perfectly placed to try it. The restaurant, called Miss Ko, is a combination of a quirky bar, a trendy boutique, an art gallery, a pastry shop, a tea room and a fine restaurant.
With all of these personalities, Miss Ko is pushing the boundaries of the restaurant concept. As such, brave diners should not miss their chance to participate in the experiment, in an environment designed by the celebrated Philippe Starck.
The unifying theme of the restaurant, despite its many facets, is Asian cuisine. This theme is apparent both on the menu and in the decor. However, designer Starck has also incorporated many global elements, giving Miss Ko a cosmopolitan, modern feel.
Diners will immediately notice the "eating bar" that is composed of television screens -- a bar that is 26 meters long. This central element creates a communal eating space that emphasizes the social aspect of the restaurant. Harkening back to the communal tables of old, this bar nonetheless pulls diners right back into modern times with its continuous broadcasts of Asian TV news programs.
However, the bar is not the only showstopper in the restaurant. There is also a giant fresco on the wall that draws inspiration from the futurist mangas that are so popular in Japan.
Diners will be delighted to learn that, at Miss Ko, the menu is as exciting as the decor. With its mix of street food and trendy Asian cuisine, there is something for all taste buds at this restaurant. Dishes include the more traditional gyoza and sushi as well as trendier Asian-European fusion dishes created by chefs from around the world.
All of this means that visitors to Paris can have a one-of-a-kind dining experience on Avenue George V, right next to the Champs-Elysées.
