Old Broccoli “Calinero” from Domane
A very modern looking, dare I say, trendy establishment. Bonvivant is laid out in two clear sections, one where you can enjoy a delicious innovative cocktail and the dining room.

Would you recommend to a friend– 100% yes. The hospitality we received from the staff was the very best I have ever encountered and I eat out a lot!

The drinks were creative and well thought out they considered every sense from taste to smell in order to create the best cocktail they could. We will be returning soon.
