Nestled into a sun-splashed river bend adjacent to the Napa River Inn, Angèle is housed in a repurposed boathouse replete with wood panels and beams, French blue-framed windows, and linen-dressed tables topped with miniature olive trees. Not only is the setting of this downtown Napa bistro completely charming, but the impressive pedigree of its father-daughter team includes experience at key wine country destinations. The menu is classic with a contemporary twist. Case in point: a seemingly simple apple salad that, at first bite, reveals a surprisingly complex composition of poached apples, roasted chestnuts, crumbled feta, and vanilla bean vinaigrette. Heartier items include a spot-on croque monsieur or roasted quail stuffed with bits of green chorizo.
