Recommended Hot-Spots

I will be staying at the Le Meridien Montparnasse in Paris and the Boscolo Hotel Plaza in Nice and wondered what recommended restaurants/cafe are near both hotels, particularly one that has a variety of cheeses available.

I am looking for something economical, but phenomenal and authentic. Additionally, if you can recommend a nightlife hot-spot in the general area, that would be great too. Many thanks.

The restaurant 'Le Montparnasse 25' at Le Méridien itself is famous for its cheese platters.

As for nightlife spots in Montparnasse, a famous one would be The Rosebud on Rue Delambre, for real night owls that is.

Or then, one of the numerous cafés and brasseries, Montparnase is so famous for. La Closerie des Lilas certainly the most upscale one. Other than that, Le Sélect, La Rotonde, Le Dôme or La Couple. All of them on Blvd. Montparnasse, near Vavin métro stop except for La Closerie which is almost near Port Royal.

As for a nice hangout place away from the mainstream, go to Le Vavin, on Rue Notre-Dame-des-Champs/Rue Vavin corner.

You'll have the impression to be in a village rather than in Paris, when sitting on its terrace.
