Carnivorous Atelier Vivanda Manila

When even the simplest meal at Atelier Vivanda Manila is elevated and transformed into a memorable dining experience...'s just the way it is, everyday, at one of the metro's finest establishments. When the modern and contemporary interiors, the courteous and efficient service, and impeccable cuisine conspire to form distinct layers to thread your dining experience in a continuous chain, you just know this is special.

Maybe it's the natural light that drapes the stark, almost zen-like interiors, the house-blended bottled spice oils, or the specially designed steak knives set in each table, whatever it is, you just know dining at Atelier Vivanda Manila will be special (for more on Atelier Vivanda Manila, see my earlier post, A Cut Above at Atelier Vivanda Manila).

Maybe it's the beef that gives Atelier Vivanda Manila that distinct edge, with its extensive selection of premium dry-aged beef. The prime Holstein Beef Rib for 2 (P 7,900 A La Carte/P 9,800 La Formule), an impressive 1-1.2 Kg slab of 50-day dry-aged beef is always a showstopper when presented, an elegantly massive cut with perfect marbling.

The La Vivanda Ribeye (P 3,200 A La Carte/P 4,300 La Formule), a 300g slab of premium beef is just as impressive, and there's simply no words needed to describe it.

Atelier Vivanda Manila offers a variety of options from their menu, simply take your pick. Enjoy a light yet hearty Special Lunch (P 950), which includes a choice of creamy Cauliflower Soup with Smoked Haddock and topped with Parmesan cheese...

...or the equally rich and comforting Pumpkin Soup with Fried Shallots, and Candied Walnuts, topped with crisp pumpkin chips.

For your main course, choose from the Grilled Rack of Lamb, or Duck Confit, Yellow Fin Tuna, and Le Croquavor, Atelier Vivanda Manila's reinterpretation of the classic burger (for more on Atelier Vivanda Manila's Special Lunch Menu, see my previous post, Make It Lunch: Atelier Vivanda Manila's Special Lunch Menu). Atelier Vivanda Manila's special lunch menu includes their signature Pomme de Terre, like the tasty Sauteed Potatoes and Mashed Potatoes, a Mixed Green Salad, Coffee or Tea with Walnut Financier. For dessert, cap your Special Lunch with Atelier Vivanda Manila's Vanilla Creme Brulee (P 350) or the Chocolate Pot Praline (P 350) to complete your lunch.

You can even create your own set with Atelier Vivanda Manila's L'Entree Au Choix, and start with the elegant and flavorful Confit Tomatoes with Ricotta Coulis, Basil, and Olive Oil (P 285)...

...or the Gravlax Salmon with Beets and Roasted Nuts (P 425), excellent starters before the mains. Other elegant starters include the Crusted Soft Boiled Egg with Almonds and French Beans with Vinaigrette (P 285) and the Foie Gras, Dried Mango, Pickled Onion, and Don Papa Jelly (P 495).

Choose your main dish from Atelier Vivanda Manila's Le Plat au Choix,  which include the tender Iberian Pork Loin (P 795)...

...and the Black Angus Hanging Tender (P 795). Other savory options include the Black Angus Hampe (P 795), Magret Duck Breast (P 995), Lamb Rack (P 850), Duck Confit (P 650), and Vendee Yellow Chicken Breast (P 850). 

And when it's Happy Hour, Atelier Vivanda Manila pulls out all the stops with their handcrafted signature Cocktails (L) paired with their Happy Hour Menu, like the Mussels (P 465), plump mussels delicately steamed in white wine with onions, garlic, and parsley...

...and the Burger Sliders (P 695), a trio of savory sliders on bite-sized brioche buns with foie gras, blue cheese, and caramelized onions, served with a side of thinly-sliced chips.

Add some Truffle Fries (P 245) to your tipple and complete the happy hour vibe (for more on Atelier Vivanda Manila's Happy Hour selections, see my other post, Happy Hour, Atelier Vivanda Style). 

But it's the steaks that make Atelier Vivanda Manila really special. Perfectly grilled to medium rare with a juicy pink center, a drizzle of their house blended spiced oil or a pinch of salt is all you need for steak this good.

If it's beef you're craving, let Atelier Vivanda Manila indulge you with their extensive selection of premium beef. Simply choose a table and let Atelier Vivanda Manila do the rest...
