Behold the utterly nuts Miss Ko, a new Paris restaurant designed by Philippe Starck and branded by British firm GBH. Le Fooding refers to the space, which opened last week, as "une kitscherie polychrome." Seems pretty accurate: There's an enormous video screen-topped table that displays a cartoon Chinese dragon flying over its surface (see video below). There are creepy bobbleheaded ghost face murals painted everywhere. There's a giant, blow-up tea pot hovering over the dining space. There's a naked lady covered in tattoos on the menu. Projections of dancing grains of rice form and reform logos on the floor and walls.

As for the food: executive chef Fabrice Monot (formerly of Bound, Paris) along with Linda Rodriguez (Bond Street New-York, Hachi Las Vegas) and Martin Swift (Nobu London) prepare an Asian fusion menu of sushi, buns, ceviche, "Japanese mini-pizzas," bibimbap burgers, bubble teas and more. Above, photos of the space; below, video of the amazing dancing dragon table and more.
