RER from CDG to Saint-Denis?

At the end of a three-week journey (France/Italy) we will be at the Novotel CDG (because of its convenience) for the last night before returning to the US. We would like to go over to Saint-Denis in the late afternoon to see the basilica and have a nice meal rather than waste the time we have at the hotel. Does the RER travel from CDG to Saint-Denis? If so, what are the travel logistics? Also, we've seen web references to Les Verdiots in Saint-Denis for dinner. Is it worthwhile? Are there others with good French cuisine that are worth recommending? Thanks.

There is no simple way of doing this as St Denis basilica is not on the same line as CDG. There are I think 3 ways to do this.
1) Taxi from the hotel there and back
2) Take the RER B right into Paris Gare du Nord and then RER D back out to St. Denis then either walk or take the tram to Basilica.
3) Take RER B to La Courneuve-Aubervilliers and either walk (2.5 kms through an area not recommended) or taxi to basilica.Have a look at those suggestions and come back to us.

Thanks for the information. Looks like a taxi there and back is the simplest, if not least expensive, solution.

RER to "Stade de France" and bus from there is also an option. See where you can plan trips from door to door.
