There are places you go for the food, and then there are places you go for the scene. And the scene at Hotel du Nord is kind of fabulous. Somewhat confusingly, it’s not hotel at all (although it is a hop/skip/jump from a very nice one), but instead a pretty buzzy restaurant and bar. At this low-lit and intimate canal-side spot the food is perfectly good but the vibe is even better. Grab a burger and a beer and settle in for a night of voyeurism, Paris style.
