Gaby & Jesse Lindsey have always loved to cook. They are renowned among their friends and family for their frequent and extraordinary dinner parties. Gaby and Jesse have a combined restaurant resume that amounts to decades of experience in the food service industry.

The atmosphere and cuisine at Viva! are a testament to the time, love, and effort put in by each of them. The genuine muse behind Viva! is Gaby's mother, Elena Krapf, who instilled a love of food and cooking in Gaby at a very young age. Although Elena is not part of the restaurant in body, she is certainly there in spirit, which lives on through her delicious recipes.
