Angelina – the iconic Parisian tearoom has opened it’s first US location at Bryant Park in NYC.
It is most famous worldwide for its epic hot chocolate – which combines three kinds of cocoa from Niger, Ghana, and Côte d’Ivoire to make one outstandingly indulgent cuppa.
Angelina was founded in 1903 by confectioner Antoine Rumpelmayer and was a destination for the Parisian aristocracy including Coco Chanel, Proust and more.
The New York venue provides charm that is reminiscent of Paris whilst offering a full service menu of both sweet and savory dishes. French brasserie classics such as Crossiants, Croque-Madame, Eggs Benedict, Niçoise salad, Saumon rôti and more are breakfast, lunch and dinner staples.
The Patisserie at Angelina is perhaps my favorite part. You must try their signature Mont-Blanc – but don’t stop there. I’m not sure if I loved the Pavlova framboise more or the Éclair chocolat but all I know is that I am going to be going back for more.
