Vivant

4 of 13

The most hotly anticipated restaurant from Pierre Jancou—a handsome, tattooed natural-wine nut whose years of living in Italy have imparted a welcome minimalism to his food—has just opened: a bistrot à vin called Vivant. “With Pierre, there’s an equal amount of passion for ingredients and traditions,” Lyn says. He’s known for hanging a picture of his grandfather in every place he owns. Try to spot the photo among the faïence tiles of pheasants, a nod to the space’s original incarnation as a bird shop. With more than 150 different bottles of biodynamic and organic wines available, you’ll have plenty of reason to prolong the hunt. 43 Rue des Petites Écuries, 10th Arr.; 33-1/42-46-43-55; dinner and drinks for two $140. —Alexandra Marshall
