Love off the Beaten Tracks
The Viaduc des Arts, the quays with second-hand booksellers or an excursion on a “bateau-mouche”: Paris offers many options for a lovely stroll. There are so many romantic spots in the City of Lights. But she has now way much more to propose. These out-of-the-ordinary addresses are proof. It’s time for a bit of fantasy on the Parisian Map of the tendre!
Mysterious Miss Kō… Never to be seen, never to be seized… The muse of the eponym restaurant comes straight from the talented mind of Philippe Stark. You can catch a glimpse of her enigmatic presence through the dim lights and the Asian hints of this futuristic place. Miss Kō invites you to her table which put the spotlight on fusion cuisine.

Your ears and eyes aren’t left out thanks to the unusual music played in the background and the gigantic fresco with its puzzling characters.
