RESTAURANT MISS KO

Set up as the narrow street of Chinatown, bubbled and colored at night, we can see at the back of this restaurant, the agitation of the open-plan kitchens, with the Chef under suspended woks and bright neon. Chinoiseries brought out of the imagination of the designer Philippe Stark, live in this studied mess, as huge Chinese lanterns or the forest of parasols over tables.

At Miss Ko, the European tastes get involved in the tradition of the Asian countries.

Restaurant
Discover revisited great classics and exceptional creations. Enjoy in major creations of Miss Ko: the famous home-made gyozas (Japanese raviolis) with foie gras, the delicious salmon spring rollers with gravelax sauce, the sashizza or the collections of mini rolls and sushis.

49, avenue George V, Paris 8
Open every day from noon to 2:00 am.

NAPOLEON AND PARIS EXHIBITION – CARNAVALET MUSEUM

NAPOLÉONOn June 22nd 1815, in the wake of his defeat at Waterloo, Napoleon Bonaparte abdicated at the Elysée Palace.
200 hundred years after the end of the First Empire, the exhibition “Napoleon and Paris: Dreams of a Capital” at the Musée Carnavalet explores the complex relationship between a remarkable man and one of the world’s most beautiful cities. Paris shaped Napoleon as much as Napoleon transformed Paris: during the Revolution, Napoleon realised public opinion could be manipulated and power was to be seized in the capital.

Paris then became the theatre for the key moments in his political career: the coup d’état of 18 Brumaire (November 9th 1799), the coronation, the wedding to Marie-Louise, the birth of his son and the second abdication.

The city of the Emperor’s dreams was a new Rome, full of splendid monuments, some completed and others merely roughed out the Vendôme column, the Stock Exchange, the Châtelet Fountain, the Temple of Glory, the two Arch of Triumph at the Carrousel and the Etoile. Some of these dreams never left the drawing board, among them the highly popular Elephant of the Bastille and the palace of the King of Rome, the archives and Orsay.

A multimedia system lets visitors home in on these major sites in Napoleon’s Paris. Bent on efficiency and the maintaining of order, the emperor also gave the capital numerous public amenities – bridges, canals, fountains, markets, abattoirs and cemeteries –, which brought real change to Parisians’ daily existence. An able administrator as well as a general, Napoleon set up an organisational system for the city that would last two centuries, including the offices of Prefect, chief of police and the Seine department council. Paris thus became the hub of the political, diplomatic and social life of the “Grand Empire” and a magnet for the élites of the New Europe.

23, rue de Sévigné 75003 Paris.
From Tuesday to Saturday, until August 30th.
From 10:00 am to 6:00 pm.
