Michelin-starred Chef Akrame Benallal Brings French Classics To Manila

Meat and potatoes have never been this good.


Atelier Vivanda specializes in beautifully done steaks and roasts, like this Holstein Beef Rib cooked just so.

If you love a good, simple meal of perfectly done steak and crispy potatoes, then you’re in for a treat.

Michelin-starred chef Akrame Benallal is just about ready to introduce Filipinos to his brand of beautifully-executed French-style classics at his brand new bistro Atelier Vivanda in Bonifacio Global City. The team at Atelier Vivandagave Yummy.ph a sneak peak at the restaurant’s menu, and we can barely keep our excitement.

The food here is simple, straightforward and rooted in classical French techniques. Here, you won’t find plates of fancy, over-the-top food, even if Chef Akrame cut his teeth at the legendary El Bulli restaurant in Spain. The dishes here are humble, think steak, roast potatoes and custard tarts, but executed with the utmost precision by their team of young chefs.

Ingredients are meticulously sourced, coming from places as far away as France, and the setting is cozy and intimate, perfect for small gatherings of friends and family.


The restaurant is set to open at Forbes Town Center, Burgos Circle, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig on February 2.
