From 1871-1914, the Parisian Belle Époque solidified the city as the world's light bearer. In these forty-three years, Paris became the epicenter of art (Impressionists), architecture (Eiffel Tower), and food (Angelina Paris). For over one hundred and twenty years, Angelina Paris created and cemented what the world thinks of as French food. Visitors and locals have journeyed to the gastronomical treasure to try its famous hot chocolate and Mount Blanc pastry. In 2022, Angelina Paris continues to serve as a French culinary hub and cultural attaché with locations in Europe, Asia, and North America. I had the chance to speak with Anthony B., COO of Angelina Paris USA, to learn more about why you should visit the restaurant.

Our mission is to bring the savior faire of patisserie and French hospitality to the world. We enact on this mission as we continue to slowly expand to other markets. When we enter a new market, we take the time to make sure we calibrate our recipes to the local ingredients (cream, butter, milk, etc.). This step by step process allows us to continue our culinary traditions in new environments.

Each item of the menu as a story- Anthony B.

Here are a few of our stories. Our all day menu dates to the time when night workers finished their working day at seven or eight in the morning and came to the restaurant for their dinner. We also have an extensive dessert menu. If you are craving something sweet, we are famous of our hot chocolate and Mount Blanc pastry (a gluten free meringue with whipped cream and chestnuts).
