Angelus Review

Owner, sommelier and former pro rugby union player Thierry Tomasin scores at this upmarket French brasserie near Lancaster Gate and Hyde Park. Styled with swirly Art Nouveau mirrors and button-back banquettes in a 200-year-old converted former pub, Angelus has a rep for unrivalled Parisian-style brasserie de luxe dishes; the ducks liver crème brûlée, egg cocotte, frog's legs, saddle of lamb or Grand Marnier soufflé are as good as they get. Classy £13 breakfasts, all-day brunch (10 am–10 pm) and light bites like 3-egg omelette and truffled brioche steak sandwiches are well conceived, and service is notoriously—how should we say this?—...Gallic! Ex-Le Gavroche sommelier Tomasin is sure to 'Umm' and 'Ahh!', shrug, sniff, gently smile, and then select an absolutely cracking bottle from the extensive and mainly French-focused wine list and Tomasin's opus and all-round master work.
