Angelique Euro Cafe: Four-Course, Prix Fixe Menu a Definite Deal
The idea is simple. You can either go the a la carte route, with starters ($8 to $12), soup & salad ($5 to $14), and entrees ($16 to $28), or try the prix fixe which works out between $26 and $38; basically, tack on $10 to any entree and you arrive at the four-course price. If you want a soup or salad off the a la carte menu, simply pay the difference.
The prix fixe can include the montadito del dia ($6 on its own) -- always a Spanish bruschetta (four pieces) that changes toppings depending upon the freshest ingredients (i.e.: prosciutto) -- and a bowl of tomato soup ($5 on its own) or petite house salad ($5 on its own), and dessert ($5 to $7 on its own). There is no printed dessert menu, as four to five selections are chef's choice -- among them red velvet cake and crème brulee.
The day I was there, the bruschetta was a simple offering with diced tomatoes on top of a crisp slice of baguette brushed with olive oil and seasoned. The tomato soup has a rich consistency and is flavored well with onions, garlic, and tarragon.

It is worth noting that Angelique Euro Cafe also offers a $17, three-course prix fixe menu for lunch. There is also a $3 charge for sharing.
