9 Places That Feel Like France in NYC

For New Yorkers who can’t get enough of France but are out of vacation days (and money), we have a solution: get a taste of l’hexagone right here in NYC. We’ve compiled a list of the best restaurants, cafés, and places that will transport you back to France, sans plane ticket.


Le District

All decent francophiles should know about Le District, NYC’s French version of the popular Eataly. You can shop for groceries and fresh French goods at the many food stations (“districts”), or even sit down at one to eat. Far better than its Italian counterpart, Le District is less crowded and located right next to the Hudson river in FiDi, meaning that you can grab your charcuterie, cheese, wine, and pastries, and picnic by the water in true French fashion.
