Bistro Vivant gets a New Chef!

My mom recently came to DC to visit and we headed out to Bistro Vivant in a GM Denali.  This car offers comfort and class.  Bistro Vivant is located in McLean, but it is well worth the drive out. 
Owner/Operator Aykan Demiroglu recently appointed Katie Busch as chef de cuisine for Bistro Vivant in McLean, Virginia.  

A Philadelphia native, Katie Busch, most recently worked as executive chef at Hospoda, a Czech restaurant in New York. During her tenure, Hospoda received 4 stars (out of 5) in a dining review from New York Daily News.  Bistro Vivant has a great French menu.  
Don't miss the French Onion Soup, Braised Lamb and Canadian Lobster.  The desserts are also divine.

If you haven't made your Valentine's Day reservations, Bistro Vivant is offering a $59 three-course, prix fixe menu with choice of appetizer, entrée and dessert this Valentine’s Day. Couples will begin their meal with an amuse bouche of Oysters with lemon crème fraiche and American hackleback caviar followed by appetizer options such as Chilled Lobster Salad with breakfast radish, blood orange and truffle vinaigrette;Creamy Parsnip Soup with grilled Bartlett pears and crispy chestnuts; Yellowfin Tuna Tartare with nicoise olives, fried capers, red pepper and balsamic dressing, or the Seared Foie Gras with Marcona almond, poached quince and cider gastrique. Main dishes not to be missed include Alaskan Halibut with wild rice, braised leek, black cardamom yogurt and Meyer lemon; Grilled Quail with sweet potato puree, wild mushrooms, sunchokes and blackberries, as well as the Prime Beef Tenderloinwith Pommes dauphine, Tuscan kale and sauce perigourdine.
