Vivant vives under the new chef M. Sota.

John Talbott | Sep 6, 2012 06:32 AM

Because I've promised on other threads to report back on my meal today in Vivant with the new chef, a M. Sota, who has passed thru every kitchen imaginable at age 26, I'm happy to report that it's alive and well; well more than well, I had the best "burned" quail I've ever had, the freshest veggies and the nicest, best priced wine in the old (bird-shop-tiled) place; Jancou opens the joint next door Sept. 15 where he will do the cooking, wine-tasting and selling etc. The prices are up from last year when one could exit for 100 E a couple (with wine & coffee) - our bill was 119 E. The customers at lunch were all French but Jancou and staff, of course, are happy to speak English for those so inclined.
