Vivant Table and Vivant Cave

Vivant Table and Vivant Cave are both in the same street. Choose Vivant Cave for homey light snacking and sipping, and Vivant Table for a sensory culinary experience. Pierre Jancou, the tattooed chef, has a knack for finding places that have a past (Vivant Table was once a shop selling birds). He’s handily delegated his kitchen to two Japanese chefs, head chef Sota and his sous-chef Masaki. Both restaurants share the same religion, that of serving natural French wines, of which there are many – let yourself be expertly guided.
