L’Angélus has been founded by Philippe Hoyez and Gabriel de Balasy.

After spending more than 10 years on stage as Professional magicians, the two business partners ventured into F&B.

Meanwhile, Gabriel de Balasy was a food critic for the famed magazine GaultMillau.

Their first restaurant opened in 1993 in Paris.
