Steak Frites near Luxembourg Parc area
Sorry for the multiple posts, I have narrowed hotels, etc.
I am looking for steak frites. Doing some research, I will be looking for a nicer piece of meat - similar to US - NY Strip or Fillet.
1. Good restaurant meeting above requirement?
2. What do those cuts of beef equate to in France?
I really appreciate all of your help on here. You have been wonderful.
Boucherie Rouliere at rue Canettes, just off the Saint Sulpice square and about 5 minutes walk from the Musee du Luxembourg. They specialize in different steak cuts available in various serving style, one was the filet with bone marrow and steak frites (I didn’t have that, but would definitely try it the next time around). Early this week, I enjoyed their strip cut with a very good sauce on the side.
The appetizer of ravioli with truffle was terrific
We went and found an awesome place near Hotel Luxembourg Parc Hotel where we were staying.
Actually had filet mignon and frites. 23 euro - Not bad. Food was GREAT. Not touristy at all, but had an English speaking waiter. Chocolate soufflé and Creme Brulée for dessert.
GREAT service. Cooked my steak well done without any problems. I would highly recommend if you are in the area. I would not come across town for it - but was wonderful. Similar to a very small NYC steakhouse.

Since you're American, you may be disappointed with our steak/frites, unless you order the filet. Also, it's not that easy to find steak AND frites in a good quality. Either the meat is nice (but no frites on the menu or no good ones, or the frites are nice, but not the steak).
Tourists seem to like Le Relais de l'Entrecôte, Rue Saint-Benoit, 6th arr. (behind Le Flore/Deux Magots).
BTW, La Rotonde is another idea (as mentioned in the other post).
PS: If you scroll down bit, you should find a similar thread with lots of answers.
La Rotonde and Brasserie Balzar, on rue des Ecoles, can offer you a fine steak au poirve. La Rotonde has a special steak for two; haven't tried it but it looked superb. And the steak Tartare at Balzar is quite good. The three Relais steak houses feature a much cheaper cut but the price is right and it tastes OK.
We ate at Relais de l'Entrecote a couple of Sundays ago, and enjoyed it. It's certainly not a strip or a filet (which is overrated, IMHO), but we didn't expect that. The meat was fine, the sauce was fine and the fries were great, especially the second helping. The atmosphere is fun.
