La Tour de Montlhéry

5 Rue des Prouvaires
Paris, 75001, France
TEL: 33-01-42-36-21-82

Food doesn’t come more traditionally Parisian than at this old school Les Halles bistro, commonly referred to as Chez Denise. Hearty portions of rustic French fare served on red-checked tablecloths focus on large, meaty offerings like offal, foie gras, marrow bones, and a steak tartare with a following. Desserts, like île flotant, a meringue and custard concoction, are memorable, too. Plan on sitting shoulder-to-shoulder on banquettes; the jam-packed dining room stirs up a lively atmosphere of late night diners and hungry industry types who've just gotten off work.

Insider Tip:

La Tour de Montlhéry is frequently mentioned in publications as one of the best places for steak frites in Paris.
