Located opposite the Théâtre de la Michodière the very original (V)ivre (Feel Good) opened last October, the concept of Caroline Savoy (Guy Savoy‘s daughter)– together with her partner and wine expert Bruno Blain.

The kitchen is helmed by chef Charlotte Thiercelin, formerly at Pickles in Nantes. Ingredients are carefully sourced such as the freshly caught fish of the day from Tom Saveurs, simply poached in olive oil. Vegetables from market gardeners Elise and Thierry Riant in the Yvelines at Carrières-sur-Seine, bread from Maison Lebon etc. (Lunch 19-24-28€; Dinner 39€ – pre theatre from 19€-24€ or post-theatre snacks. Six course tasting menu 59€ with wine pairings 89€).

Standouts are the tender Cevennes Onion starter, onion broth/ buckwheat crumble and slow cooked shoulder of Lozère lamb with red cabbage and black olives. Choose from 200 French and international wine references; Bruno Blain suggests 2013 Roquette & Cazes Douro 2013 (58€) or glasses from €6. Running the perfectly orchestrated upstairs and downstairs salles, punctuated with contemporary art, is James Tromeur, the Franco/Yorkshireman who comes to (V)ivre via Christian Constant’s Le Violon d’Ingres and the Plaza Athénée where he learned the art of service from the Master – Denis Courtiade.

Long live (V) Ivre !
