What an extraordinary spot for a Sunday afternoon with friends. Marie and I joined Janeen for a leisurely déjeuner in April after a busy morning in the markets. Hôtel du Nord is situated on the bank of Canal St. Martin and has a history to match the ambiance with its black and white tiled floors, zinc bar, and rich wood. With its welcoming service and reasonably-priced tasty French cuisine, I could be a regular here.
