Montparnasse & a Paris splurge

Hi folks,

We'll be arriving in Paris at lunchtime on a Friday in May at Gare Montparnasse, so I'm looking for suggestions for a really excellent lunchtime meal in that area. Does anyone know anything about Bistrotters? Are there any 2- or 3-star restaurants in that area that may offer lunch? Give us some ideas, please!

Also, our group of 6 will be in Paris for the entire weekend, and we're looking for a handful of recommendations for truly great meals anywhere in the city. The World's Top 50 lists Joel Robuchon, Le Chateaubriand, L'Arpege, Pierre Gagnaire and L'Astrance between 12 and 18 of the world's best, but is that really what French gourmands believe? Tell me where we should NOT miss!

Thank you very much in advance for your help.
