Hidden secret Paris : not really Paris but a rare discovery !

During a walk on the "Canal de l'Ourcq" between Paris and Sevran (superb walk) I discovered a unique restaurant in Bobigny.
 It is not Paris but the close suburbs. First of all it is a restaurant which plunges you in the atmosphere of Paris of the years 1960 / 1970, a nostalgic atmosphere.
 Frequented by the workers of the district and only known of the initiated ones you can eat there (only the midday) a copious typically French traditional kitchen, entirely "homemade" for an incredible price of 15 euros for a menu 3 courses: starter, main course, dessert and even 25 Cl of a small white wine, red or rosé to accompany the whole included in the price. It's incredible to find this price for a complete menu in Paris or its close suburbs.
 Moreover the owner is extremely friendly and will not hesitate to tell you lots of anecdotes about the city and the "Canal de l'Ourcq" and to joke with you. So even if the place does not correspond to your usual standards, do not hesitate to enter, you will not regret it.

Notre Dame de Paris

Notre Dame de Paris is the Paris cathedral.

Notre-Dame de Paris Cathedral, a masterpiece of Gothic architecture, is the most visited monument in France. Located in the historic center of Paris, at the end of the Ile de la Cité, its construction began in the Middle Ages. Work began in the 13th century and ended in the 15th century. Very damaged during the French Revolution, the cathedral was the subject of a restoration in the XIXth century directed by the architect Viollet-le-Duc. Many visitors admire the stained glass windows and rosettes, the towers, the spire and the gargoyles. They can also discover the Treasure of Notre-Dame and climb the towers to enjoy a panoramic view of Paris.

The Louis Vuitton Foundation, located in the Bois de Boulogne, a stone's throw from the Jardin d'Acclimatation, opened its doors on October 27, 2014. The collections and the programming of the Foundation are deeply rooted in the history of artistic movements of 20th and 21st century and exhibited in an architectural setting, designed by the American Frank Gehry. The visionary architect is revolutionizing the use of glass and creating shapes never imagined before, to give birth to a bright, light, unique and innovative building. In addition to the artistic and architectural riches of the Louis Vuitton Foundation, visitors can take advantage of the panoramic views offered from the various terraces of the building.
