Tea Time in New York City (Travel Curator) 980 735 The Parisian Tea Room

There are many ways to while away a late afternoon in New York, but when I have some serious catching up to do with a friend, we head out for fancy afternoon tea. Not only is it always fun and festive, but it’s never complicated. Once we’ve settled in and ordered our tea, an elegant selection of sweet and savory treats arrive as if by magic. Even better, we can linger for hours, nibbling sandwiches, scones and tiny desserts, sipping tea and catching up, all with very few interruptions…

Read on for some of New York City’s most sumptuous tea services…

Parisian Tea Room

Tucked into a Garment District lowrise, this tiny French café resembles a Victorian drawing room with velvet chairs, crystal sconces, and marble-topped tables. Be sure to arrive hungry: tea begins with a fresh green salad and sandwiches arrive on flaky, full-sized croissants. A selection of macarons, pots de crème and tea cakes — all made in-house  — follow. Though no alcohol is served, there’s a wide selection of mocktails and other beverages as well as à la carte menus for a creative breakfast tea and lunch.
