Café Anglais

Old Liquors, Café Anglais

Café Anglais: Opened in 1802, the restaurant was named in honor of the Treaty of Amiens, a peace accord signed between Britain and France. In 1822, the new proprietor, Paul Chevreuil, turned it into a fashionable restaurant with a reputation for roasted and grilled meats. It was after the arrival of chef Adolphe Dugléré that the Café Anglais achieved its highest gastronomic reputation.

In 1867, during the Paris World Exhibition, Alexander II, Czar of the Russian Empire, the Czarevitch and future Alexander III, William I, King of Prussia and future Emperor and the Prince Otto von Bismarck sat down at the same table. For these illustrious guests, Dugléré, the Chef, prepared an equally exceptional menu with nothing less than five starters, six main courses and four desserts.

Old Liquors, Tour D'Argent

The Café Anglais was nothing less than the most fashionable and frequented of Parisian establishments of the time. The interior was elaborately decorated with furniture in mahogany and walnut woods, and mirrors of gold leaf patina. Although the Café Anglais closed in 1913, when the building was demolished, the table setting for this dinner is now displayed at La Tour d’Argent, the oldest surviving restaurant in Paris.
