Bar Kouto in ParisKouto (Paris) - © Marion Motel

Head on over to Kouto, a sharp little spot tucked away behind the Grands Boulevards, where lovebirds Marie and Chirine Cabaret-Besenval operate on the knife’s edge behind the bar. Decorated with their grandfathers’ butcher knives, the stylish wooden décor is in perfect harmony with the artisanal charcuterie plates (€7-10), which in turn pair nicely with the seasonal drink menu (€12 each): a well-traveled Curry made with light and dark rum, pineapple, coconut milk and curry; a classy Noisette with bitter woody notes, made with whiskey, Madeira wine, homemade spice liqueur and a cream of chestnut espuma. And so there aren’t any jealous guests, the eight creations of the moment – which change every two months – can also be made without alcohol (€8)! // A.B.
