On the ever-expanding brasserie circuit, the formerly dreary midtown establishment Montparnasse was transformed by chef David Farraro into a kind of mecca for traditionalist Francophile devotees. Dip into the old-fashioned coq au vin, poured over mashed potatoes and bacon, or a proper serving of onglet, covered in red-wine-and-shallot sauce and buried in a golden tangle of salt-speckled frites, naturally.
Steak frites, $25; roasted duck breast, $25
