On the surface Angel Face appears simple and unassuming; there is no cocktail menu and the short list of French bar snacks contains zero description. But this quiet little bar with its pink wallpaper and quirky flower arrangements, has a nuanced way with drinks. The white marble horseshoe bar displays spirits bottles in overhead racks while a few excellent wines—many of which are French and natural—hide behind the counter (sister restaurant Navarre next door excels in the wine department). And despite the lack of a drink menu, the bartenders know the classics and deploy them in delicate glassware with subtle flourishes.
