The success of this Parisian establishment is foremost due to its tight prices for an elaborated cuisine.
In the year 1997 Jean-Marc Gorsy and his wife took the control of the Café d’Angel. The young chef, who passed by Jules Verne, the Tour Eiffel, has now put his anchor in a small street next to the Place de l’Etoile. Not a single day where Jean-Marc is not behind the oven. A varied clientele, beautiful flowers arranged by Mireille. The success of the CaféAngel is foremost due to its tight prices for an elaborated cuisine. The menu changes twice a weed: 27 €, 2 dishes; 33 €, 3 dishes. The products are extremely fresh and the chef knows perfectly how to get the best out of each of them. His Thai-style tuna tartare is served with a potato and cucumber salad. The fishes are perfectly cooked and the side dishes (fresh herbs, lemongrass and green apple) are unique and tasty.

A la carte: Duck foie gras terrine, homemade rhubarb jam (16 €), caramelized piglet shoulder, soy juice, lime and confit vegetables (24 €). The desserts follow the seasons. The pan-fried mirabelles with sugar and spices, vanilla ice cream or liquorice are really delicious. A real homemade dessert!

Le Café d'Angel, 16, rue Brey, 75017 Paris (01.47.54.03.33). Menu: approximately 50 € (without beverage). Closed on Saturday and Sunday.

An unpretentious vitrine and still a place to know in the district of the Place de l’Etoile!
It is uncommon in our days that the prices for lunch stay the same for dinner, namely set-price-menus for 27€ and 33€. And for this price you obtain a high quality performance, proposed by a chef who has been trained in big restaurants. Beyond simple and efficient names hides an astonishing cuisine that plays with flavours and textures, quick in the menu and more sophisticated à la carte. The desserts also are remarkable, and cacao lovers like us will appreciate the Liégeoise au chocolat, a welcomed alternative to the eternal chocolate mousse. We maintain our crush from the last year.
A la carte: sea bass with sesame seeds and pan-fried foie gras 16€. Crisp pork leg, leek salad, tartar sauce 14€. Roast piglet shoulder with spices, potato galettes and mushrooms 24€. Veal cutlet with morels and oyster mushrooms, mashed potatoes 26€. Roast kate wing, soy sauce, confit bell pepper and aubergine 26€. Grilled mackerels on fruit compote, curry sauce 9€. Crisp apple pie, salted butter caramel 9€. Walnut and hazelnut pie, vanilla ice cream 9€.
Selection Betterave + Desseauve: Authentic pear cider, Eric Bordelet, 28€. Pear cider, Eric Bordelet, 42€. Vouvray semi-dry white wine, Domaine Huet, 46 €

Brasserie and bistro.

Nearby the Place de l’Etoile, this frist so shy district bistrot became grown up: years go by and the notoriety grows, making it more and more easy for the chef to choose and to work with his favourite products, even though in a still convenient way: sea bass ceviche with sesame seeds, bone marrow and veal gravy, pan-fried scallops with confit vegetables and sauce with herbs, caramelised piglet shoulder with soy sauce, lime and quinoa…
For lunch a complete set-price menu for 33€ that it’s Worth.

Traditional cuisine. Bistro.

This nice little address cultivates the nostalgia for the ancient Parisian bistros: benches in false leather, stoneware on the walls, traditional meals on the chalkboard and open kitchen behind the bar. Here you can taste in total piece some pan-fried squids with fresh herbs or a crisp blood sausage with mashed potatoes.
Set-price menus 27€ - 33€ - A la carte 43 / 53 €

HORN - Magazine, le luxe de vos clients

A true cuisine, pure, without making a lot of hoopla about, which goes right to the point
Genuine products and the love for the seasons. Jean-Marc speaks to our child’s heart, to our intimity, we recover the authentic taste. Sporty and slim, the cuisine looks like him, and does not cheat; light and not really trendy, gourmet without being old fashioned, and finally traditional meals that are nourishing and sain.
The Café d’Angel, no publicity, no communication, no promotion, only known through word-of-mouth advice drives a clientèle of businessmen, who became awfully loyal, and tourists who have been advised by the hôtels around.
Whether he prepares à millefeuille with confit aubergines, quinquina and gentian, or a blood sausage with green apple, spinach and rosemary sauce, his inspiration is always authentic, his cuisine inventive and his wines in harmony.
By the way, it’s Danièle Gerault, the magician, the alchemist, and her perfect humanity, out of the “Years of Wine”,  we mentioned before, who created the wine list.
