You can tell the chef is having a good time at this narrow, dimly-lit spot outfitted with giant dripping candlesticks because he subtly bops along to Prince and Led Zeppelin while plating the likes of an ikejime fish with a creamy cashew-nut puree and the most blow-your-mind broccoli we’ve ever had, topped with green mole, peas and herbs. While the menu shifts regularly at Vivant II, what’s been dubbed “The Bone,” a 3.3 lb beef rib, served - you guessed it - on the bone, is fast-becoming a staple and will most likely be available for those hungry enough to gnaw on a whopping €70 piece of protein. Oh, and if it’s on the menu, get the brillat-savarin whipped cream for dessert. Trust us.
