The New Year has not only brought a new chef to Restaurant Angélique in Dartmouth, but also a new look and a change of name, to ‘The Angel, Dartmouth’.
Chef Stephen Bulmer commented: ‘I appreciate it seems a bit strange to change the name again, but my wife Jo and I felt that a straightforward, English name was more appropriate to my style of cooking and atmosphere we want to create in the restaurant. However, we respect and recognise the long culinary heritage of the restaurant, thus we felt ‘The Angel, Dartmouth’, fits the bill.’
Just as the menu features local and seasonal produce, so the restaurant interior now reflects it’s beautiful waterside location, with the colours of the sea and the work of local artists helping to create an informal, relaxed environment. Steve’s new menu launched this week and has been very well received by customers.
A selection from the A la Carte menu might include:
Duck Confit with Celeriac, Caramelised Apple and Sherry Vinegar £7.50
Braised Fillet of Brill with Lemon Sabayon, Wild Mushrooms and Watercress Purée £17.50
Vanilla Pannacotta with Spiced Pear Compote and Madeleine £6.50
There is also a daily-changing, set price menu available from Wednesday to Friday offering two courses for £18.50 and three courses for £22.50 and a Sunday lunch menu at £15.95/£19.95.
Steve also has plans to get out from behind the stove. An enthusiastic and gregarious Yorkshireman, he will be holding regular demonstrations and cookery classes at The Angel, including a daily demonstration of the ‘Dish of the Day’ at 12 noon and 6.30pm from mid February.
