Things To Do In Paris: [March 2020]

March finally brings brief respites from winter weather as we move closer to spring in Paris. Whether you’re around for St. Patrick’s Day or for the Jazz Festival, keep reading for fun places to eat, drink, and stay, as well as a quick health update on traveling in Paris during the coronavirus.

I did a short video on Instagram yesterday and will be publishing a longer on on the topic of Coronavirus on Youtube. So you can subscribe here to be notified

In any event we we are not (yet!) in panic mode as other parts of the world (like the state of emergency in New York) and just being more cautious with hygiene and still carry in on with daily activities – the public transportation and schools are still open.

EAT

À l’Èpi d’Or

Around since the 1880s and hot spot in the 1920s, À l’Èpi d’Or has recently been given a facelift by chef Jean-François Piège, who has combined a rustic atmosphere with a fresh take on traditional French cuisine. On the menu you’ll also find many Portuguese-inspired dishes.

If you’re wanting to visit this popular spot, be sure to make a reservation either by phone or online.

Address:

25 Rue Jean-Jacques Rousseau
75001 Paris

    Oh Paris, we had a weekend trip booked here in spring, but our boarders were closed. We have noted your recommendations for when we can go to magical Paris again, guess we just have some extra time to plan it!
    Stay safe
    Cheers from Denmark
