Bon Vivant, a recently opened French Bistro in Bloomsbury near Londons Kings Cross, is one of the cutest French restaurants I came across in London lately. The quaint setup oozes Parisian vibe and I knew that we will really enjoy our visit to the Bon Vivant.
Aside from its cool location, the interior really made me love Bon Vivant. Its velvet blue chairs and dusky walls really add an element of cool to the restaurant and make it a perfect spot for a dinner after work or even a date. They serve a bottomless brunch on the weekend tho so that’s also a great reason to visit and it’s on my to-do list.
Food wise, we didn’t really feel like going fully French with our choices as recently started cutting down on meat and dairy so we both opted for fish. I have however noticed that my consumption of bread and carbs has increased but I’m always trying to make better choices for myself.
We started our Bon Vivan experience with a Tartare de Saumon with Gin Cured Salmon Tartar, Cucumber Two Ways, Mint, Crème Fraiche, Confit Lemon served with a side of the bread basket. Main wise we both decided to have Fillet de Daurade which is seared Sea Bream served with Spinach, Ricotta, Braised Leeks, Sauce Vierge, Nasturtium. We ordered my old time favourite red wine Cotes du Rhone which maybe was not the best choice since we had fish but I can’t help it since I love it so much. You can have a look at their menu HERE.
All in all Bon Vivant is a cute little spot for a mid-week catch up with your friends. Food and wine were very delicious and atmosphere very chilled which makes Bon Vivant also really good for a date.
Do you have a favourite French Bistro in London and if so please let me know where it is as I would love to go and check it out.
Happy Wednesday everybody.
