National: the location that makes the whole Paris rush

Terrace of the National Hotel Arts and Crafts, Rooftop in the Marais

If you must remember one place in the category “new trendy spot” in the 2017 back to work fall, it’s this one. The “National”, a furiously chic hotel settled in front of the Saint Martin Church, newcomer in the trendy Eldorado named Sainte-Avoye… All the info on the Saint Avoye district, the still secret Marais.

The houses’ fermata: the Italian style patio-bar-restaurant. In command : the all-star of socialite Parisian restoration, starting Julien Cohen (Pizza-Chic, Grazie…) and the duo Jean-Pierre Lopez/Thomas Delafon (Le Très HonoréBambou…).

All this world gathers at Cicceria right after work, their refuge in order to enjoy a last minute drink (no reservation), sip on a Spritz, an old-fashioned glass of wine or a cocktail, to be coupled with particularly meticulous venetian tapas : mini Milanese cutlet (€6), arancini (€7), mini octopus carpaccio (€9), or lardo di colonnatta (€15).

Settle down for an evening meal : book a reservation in advance for the Italian dinning room : Ristorante National. On the agenda, a simply stunning pasta, linguine “à la poutarque” (€23) or gluten-free spaghetti made of kamut flour and safran (€20), refined fairs such as the veal piccata with lemon (€24), and a parade of comfort-food desserts in the style of lemon-cream and passion fruits (€12) …

Another favoured feature : a sensational rooftop, if the weather is fine, where all that is needed is a drink, to socialise and admire the view. No food available.
