Finding a good afternoon tea, especially a few thousand miles from London, requires some sleuthing. Make a beeline for the Museum Of Modern Art, and then cross the street and go through the sleek doors of the very chic Baccarat Hotel New York—itself a design lover’s dream, with its plush suites, white marble bathrooms (laden with La Mer skincare products), sunken 55-foot marble swimming pool and chic Parisian sensibility.

You’re in great hands, with tea sommelier Gabrielle Jammal overseeing many of the partnerships with entities such as French tea company Mariage Frères. Settle down with a menu of chef-selected canapés and petits fours, and pairings inspired by Baccarat’s long-time association with royal houses across the world. Still hungry? Step into the Grand Salon or the Bar to try Chef Gabriel Kreuther’s new menu that highlights his Alsatian heritage and French technique.
