Thank you so much! (Everything is so spread out in this city, most European cities all the Jewish stuff are in one or two concentrated areas...)

Itís not really spread out but you have several Jewish area across the city where you can find everything you need. You have one big area in the 8,16,17th another one in the 19th and some restaurants synagogue and Mikve in the center of paris.

For breakfast you can do Le XXV great place for French breakfast CY
There is a Chabad on Champs Elysťes pretty sure there is a morning minyan.

For Mikve you use the one Rue Montevideo 75116 (Sepharade) or the Chabad one https://www.loubavitch16.com/templates/articlecco_cdo/aid/2189298/jewish/Le-Mikve.htm

You can PM me if you want Iíll give you my WhatsApp number if you need while in Paris.

I'm planning a 3 day trip to Paris and have a few questions, any help would be very appreciated! (Just a couple, no children)

1) I want to do top of Arc de Triomphe at sunset, but have no patience climbing the steps. Any DPís how to get into the elevator, which is officially only for handicapped?

2) Any Chabad/Heimish Shul with a Mikvah and 8ish - 9ish Shachris?

3) The PH seems to be the rage. However, Hyatt now has "Small Luxury Hotels of the World", and there is a Hotel called "Grand Powers" which seems to be way better than PH in luxury and location. Also the "Le Narcisse Blanc H‘TEL & Spa" looks better than PH. Anyone stayed here/knows about the experience? Or is PH really the holy grail and I'm just being blinded by TripAdvisor...

4) I like renting cars in European cities. I am landing at ORY and leaving CDG. Is there a one way rental fee? Or is it like NYC where they don't charge one way fees airport-to-airport?

5) I have 2 mornings, where I am eating breakfast, top 2 CY places?

6) Seems like Kavod is only Glatt option this summer, correct?

7) I have patience for only one art museum. Louvre or Orsay? (Don't feel a need to tick off Mona Lisa, but want the better overall experience)

TIA!!

Adat yereim too (Frankfurter).
Some restaurants have a Bet din Glatt option, which consists of a special glatt line that the bet din does with chabad shochtim. The meat comes from Shapira Rue Petit.

It's Beth Din Shochtim now, they now have a Halak Beth Yossef Supervision available for both meat and restaurant

Which restaurants?

Bassar is Beth Din Halak Beth Yossef for example, I believe it's the first one which is Beth Din Halak, but some Beth Din restaurant do offer Glatt meat. Also Veal is always Glatt even in Beth din Restaurant

What does this mean? How do I get to the "kosher paris wiki"?

Also, what neighborhood would you recommend spending shabbat in (with kids)?

It really depends what you are looking for, but 16th, 17th and 19th district are the best one for synagogue and restaurants.

I'm looking for anything open early, preferably breakfast but anyplace we can grab some food. I would take other suggestions for lunch or dinner too.

We are taking the train in from Brussels and get off at Gare du Nord.

I am not sure you'll find a kosher place for breakfast near Gare du Nord, easiest thing to do would be to buy something at a supermarket you can find several kosher product under the Paris Beth Din supervision (non halav Israel) in any supermarket you just need to have the list or know what to look for as they is no kosher sign. Also the Paris Beth Din authorise to buy regular bread (Baguette) in any bakery as long as they are made on premise and not baked in a baking pan.

Then for lunch and dinner depending where you are located and what you prefer meat or dairy I can help.

For lunch you can always use Uber Eats or Deliveroo to get something delivered to an address near you.

I am coming in to the central train station. Do you know of anything closer?

Our plan is to start the day at Notre Dame, go to the Catacombs, then the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomph if there is time before heading back to the train station. Unfortunately, we only have 1 day.

Are you looking for something in particular or just to get breakfast? And also what's the central train station? :)

Are any of the bakeries open early in the morning (like 8 am)?

Le XXV 25 Avenue Paul Doumer, 75016 Paris opens at 8am. The one located at 225 Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honorť, 75008 Paris opens at 8:30am.

Where will you be located?

Not sure if this was updated yet on DDF but I saw this on the chabad site so I figured Id repost it...not sure what changed.
Im going tomorrow so I can tell you if its correct when I see for myself. We're staying in an airbnb out by Love beach which is much more secluded, so can't offer much in terms of kosher at the hotels...

Here's from Chabad:

You'll be surprised to find that there is quite a variety of kosher food products in the local grocery stores!
 
A large selection of Kosher food is found in the upscale grocery called 'Fresh Market'. There is one location a 10 minute drive from the Atlantis and another one which is a 20-minute drive from the Baha Mar (5 min from the airport).

They have a FULL Kosher section of both frozen, chilled and dry items. Including deli meats, cheeses, hot dogs, frozen chicken bottoms and breasts, steaks, ground meat, Kedem grape juice, Challah, Kleinís ice cream, Bissli, Bamba, chocolate, tradition soups, Kosher Milk (non Cholov Yisroel) etc.

They also carry a huge selection of US brand foods and much of it is Kosher.

There is no Kosher restaurant or Kosher catering service in the Bahamas.

The Baha Mar resorts (Hyatt/SLS/Rosewood) can order in Kosher hot meals for your visit from Miami.

Nice to know :) Don't hesitate to post about your experience I'm going there for 5 days in August and have not figured out yet how to deal with kosher food.

Thanks!

what are the Lakes? If you mean the 5 great lakes , only Lake Michigan is near Chicago . The others are hours away.
Lake Erie- hours away by Toledo/Cleveland/ Niagara
Lake Huron- 7 hours away northern michigan
Lake Superior- 5 hours away Northern Wisconsin/ UP Michigan
Lake Ontario- 10 hours

I do plan to drive around as much as possible, Lake Superior is on my list for sure. I'm looking for point of interest and things to see around so that I can plan accordingly.
I also have Mackinac Island on my list and Madeline Island maybe but if anyone has done it recently or have any advices that would be great :)
