Hi,

I'm going to be visiting Paris later this week, I had a few questions.

  • I'll be staying at the Hyatt Du Louvre, has anyone stayed there recently and could share their experience?
  • Do we know if the trains are functioning properly? is there a place to check? or will I just have to wait until I get there?
  • For Shabbat food, I found a website that delivers called "La box de Chabbat" under chabad hashgocha. Has anyone tried this?

thanks

For La Box de Shabbath, the owner is a friend so I checked with him and itís indeed glatt, you can contact him at contact@laboxdechabbat.com if you need the menu in English and want to get more details.

Thank you!
For coffee and croissants (and other bakery items), what would you recommend that is closest to the Louvre? 
Are there places that are open motzei Shabbat? maybe a pizza place or similar?

For breakfast I would recommend Le XXV they have two places in Paris. After shabbath for Halavi you can do Inte Caffť (no pizzas, but maybe the best Halavi in Paris.) if you want Pizzas you have Il Conte (ok), Maestro and Motorino (napolitan pizza). Motorino is really good but really small place and Maestro usually crowded so you would have to book before coming in.

Glatt kosher only.
I'm also looking for a nice fleishig place to go Thursday evening for dinner. My wife would like to go to Kavod, but it is my understanding that it's not Glatt.

Kavod is not Glatt but might have Glatt meat, you have to call/ask the machgiah. Or you can go to Bassar Paris 17Ťme which is Beth Din halak Beth Yossef.

Subway strike is pretty much over, you can get infos on the RATP website, but you should be good to go.
I sometimes buy some salads from La Box de Shabbath they are pretty good, I would definitely recommend it. Are you looking to get Glatt kosher meat or regular Beth Din is ok?

The owner of Inte Caffťe and Bassar is the same. When he opened Bassar he wanted to keep his customers from Inte, so he went Glatt/Rav Katz as many of his customers at Inte were only eating Glatt.

The issue he had was that he had too many restrictions on vegetables, fruits and product he could buy. So he switched to Beth Din Halak Beth Yossef (Glatt) and he was the first in Paris.
I donít know the exact differences but Iíll ask him next time to understand.

Thatís true so if Beth din halavi is ok for you then regular Beth din with glatt meat should be ok unless there is an issue with restaurant cooking both glatt and not glatt meat

Heh.
Are there any issues eating glatt meat made with non-glatt keilim for someone makpid on glatt?

The thing is that glatt and halak Beth yossef have more restrictions on food than just meat. For example in France, when a restaurant is glatt they canít serve certain type of fruits and vegetables. So itís really just about meat but itís more than that. I would need to check with a rabbi here to tell you exactly whatís different between Beth din and Beth din halak/glatt apart from meat.

le kavod has glatt too?

They have regular Beth din but they sometimes has glatt meat. Veal is always glatt, but other meats are sometimes glatt but not always.

It requires halak Beth yossef meat which is the same as glatt yes.

Bassar ( Paris 17Ťme) is the first restaurant to have this certification.

Generally not considered acceptable for meat as they don't require glatt. But speak to the mashgiach.

@Dan Badatz paris now offers a halak beth yossef Hechsher. Itís written directly on the Certification.
You can have a regular certification or a halak one. Both are Beth Din( now Badatz) but itís different than restaurant with regular Badatz serving halak meat.

You have Kavod, they have a great lunch menu for 20 euros. If not they are plenty of options in the 16th or 17th district. Bozen Iena, Bozen Villiers if you like sushi, hbk burger, villa k, il conte, maesto, motorino or Iossa for Italian/ pizzas.

Honestly depending on what you feel like for lunch you have options not that far :)
