L'Anthracite

French in Montparnasse & Southern Paris

For refined dining, reserve a table at this elegant 'bistronomique' restaurant with polished parquet, unpretentious wooden tables, the odd decorative bookshelf and exceptional Aubrac beef from France's Massif Central that the bistro matures itself, still on the bone for at least 30 days. The feisty côte de boeuf (rib steak; €82/105 for two/three people) with home-made fries and salad is memorable.
