supper club viv

a home-dining soirée at viv's, open to friends and family, kith and kin

Around My French Table is a series of dinners celebrating all the good things in French cuisine, from classical technique to classic dishes, to the rigors of mise en place and relentless practice, and of course, a good pot of stock and our unmistakeable jar of homemade clarified butter

Our table seats six, we start at 7PM, and ease into the evening, concluding around 10PM. If you'd like to bid good night earlier, please let us know ahead of our soirée, we'll move the dinner along with greater efficiency.

Our menus embrace hara hachibu, the Japanese precept that encourages us to eat till we've filled "an eighth of the stomach." And that's our goal: for our guests to feel satisfied, not stuffed.

Thu, Nov 28 | Sat, Nov 30 | 7PM
