I don't very often venture down into the 14th arrondissement. It might sound rather short-sighted, or even snobbish, of me, but being an 18th kinda girl at heart, I have realised that I normally gravitate to the right bank. I can find everything I need up here, so it is rare that I need to go venturing any further south than the Saint Germain area for example...

However, my mother was in Paris last week and she was staying in a hotel down near the Tour Montparnasse. So when you gotta go, you gotta go. Needs must, you see.

Fortunately, I happen to know a rather good restaurant right around the corner. It's called Le Petit Sommelier, and that's because it is a family-owned brasserie, a mother-father team, and their 'little' son is an up-and-coming sommelier. This just happens to be a pretty excellent combination. The food is exquisite - it's modern French cooking with a homely feel to it. The wine list is, similarly, a delight to behold. 

They have an evening menu at around 32 euros for three courses.... I had the prawn and avocado salad, which couldn't have been fresher, followed by three-way duck (confit, magret and foie gras) and finished with the cafe gourmand. My mum followed suit, apart from she chose the beef bourgignon (which I willingly obliged to finish for her as there was easily enough meat in that cocotte for three people!) Absolutely irreproachable, the whole meal. 100% recommended.
