You will find this mythical place, made famous on the big screen, on the shore of Canal Saint Martin. You have guessed, it is the famous Hôtel du Nord!
A movie feel
We all know the 1938 cult film by Marcel Carné. Inspired by Eugène Dabit’s novel, the hotel was presented as modest and with a typical «titi parisien» atmosphere. In the 70’s, after the international success of the film, it was made into an actual hotel, much to the pleasure of fans everywhere. Revamped in 1993, the hotel becomes a great success.
A little known restaurant
Today, only a bar and restaurant, it honors the historical Paris with its 1930’s style. On the menu, original dishes with exotic accents will tempt your tatebuds, such as the Millefeuille with raw tuna in the Japanese style, or the goat cheese ravioli with basil, walnuts and roquette lettuce. You will also find typical French dishes: Assiette de Charcuterie (deli-platter) (dry sausage from Ardèche, ham from Bayonne, and traditional «Prince de Paris» cooked ham), rib steak, half-cooked foie gras and more. For you vegeterians out there, the restaurant at Hôtel du Nord has a Veggie Burger for 19€. And if, like us at Hotel Mareuil, you have a bit of a sweet tooth, you will surely order French toast with salted butter caramel or carrot cake.
The restaurant is open for lunch from noon to 2:30pm, Saturday until 3pm and 4pm to Sunday. The evening is open from 7:30pm to 11pm.
