Hôtel du Nord - IV



Hôtel du Nord is one of my favorite restaurants
with a neighborhood setting along Canal St. Martin.


On our last night in Paris this April,
my husband and I enjoyed the company of dear friend Janeen
and our Paris friend Isabelle. 


Leaving Paris is bittersweet, but always holds the promise of trips to come.

You picked quite a fine place for dinner.

Most famous quote in the old French classic "Hotel du Nord," with Arletty and Louis Jouvet: "Atmosphere, Atmosphere: Est-ce que j'ai une gueule d'atmosphere?"-- You've got to watch it Genie. Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

What a delightful place indeed!! Such a great capture, too! I know you will miss Paris! I miss it for you as well! But it will be waiting for you! Have a lovely weekend, mon amie!

Hugs

An exquisite place for one's lasts meal in Paris. Trop cher, je pense, mais pour le dîner final à Paris, c'est très bien!

Hello Genie:
Exactly our kind of restaurant from the plain white tablecloths, the starched napkins to, in contrast, the scrubbed wooden floor and the plain, simple furnishings.

And we imagine that the food is delicious too.

I love seeing restaurants and cafes like this, in a state of calm and prepared expectancy. The light is beautiful, too, Genie.

I´ve never been to the Hôtel du Nord, but it looks very nice. And you are soooo right: Leaving Paris is always bittersweet.

It's one of my favorites too but believe it or not, I didn't bring my camera the night we went!!! What was I thinking???? And as for leaving Paris? I don't want to talk about it.

Bibi said...

Yes, a beautiful place. I've only had drinks there, but....

And the movie--u gotta watch.

It used to be a comedy club.

What a lovely place to spend a last night.. (or any night) in Paris! Such sparkling atmosphere. What light! You must be 'homesick' for Paris often, Genie?

Alexa said...

What a great choice for your "until next time" dinner in Paris. Your shot makes me feel like I'm right there (I wish!).

Paula said...

Is that you? Love the atmosphere, is there dancing?

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Veronique and Bibi, I know of the movie and really must watch it soon.

This dining area is up three steps from the bar area and is just as cozy and romantic as the photo shows. I did not see any dancing, but perhaps on certain evenings? I am not sure.

This restaurant typifies la vie quotidienne to me. If I lived in Paris this would be my "special evening place with friends." Alons-y!

Bises,
Genie

A delightful place for a "farewell" meal with friends.

J'aime beaucoup ce restaurant et lorsque je vais près du Canal St Martin, je vais manger en ce lieu !
