Few things make us feel fancier than afternoon tea—especially in New York City. The gorgeous teapots, dainty and delicious finger foods (there’s something special about those quintessential scones with clotted cream and jam), and the excuse to get a little dressed up for the occasion? Yes, please! The UK is really onto something, and we’re all for adopting the tradition.
We searched far and wide for teatime experiences around NYC. Whether you’re looking for a cozy day in an under-the-radar tearoom, an elaborate affair in a fancy hotel dining room, or even a holiday or kid-friendly excursion, your next reservation is on this list. You can even book some of these tearooms for special events, like a bridal shower or a small wedding!
Whether you’re looking for a traditional English tea experience or ones with an Asian or Parisian flair (macarons, anyone?), we’re guessing you’ll be adding more than one of these restaurants to your teatime bucket list. Pinkies up!
The Parisian Tea Room, New York City
This tearoom in the Garment District of Manhattan transports you straight to 1920s Paris, with the option of turning your high tea into a sewing party too—thanks to founder and fashion designer Karen Elizabeth Lozner.
