Savour a meal at the tempting spots across Angers, the ultimate gourmet city! We've unearthed ones only familiar to those in the know or tucked away out of sight...
Prized for its famous balminess that is the foil for a resolute epicureanism, Angers is also the home of Curnonsky, the illustrious culinary critic crowned the "prince of the gastronomes". It is a city full of the wonders on offered in Anjou, including market produce, meat and poultry breeds and fish from the Loire. The local culinary specialities, such as rillauds, paté with prunes, fouasse, crémet d'Anjou, quernon d'ardoise and the local wines and liqueurs also add to the delight.
Given the context, it's no surprise that gourmet spots abound in town. Sometimes, though, you have to hunt around to unearth them. We have pounded the pavements of the city of King René on the search for a Michelin-starred restaurant tucked away upstairs in a bourgeois building, a secret tea room, an amazing pâtisserie on a little square, and even a tiny hole-in-the-wall of bistronomy reserved for those in the know. Bon voyage and, above all, bon appétit!
