Thé Adoré

A little refuge from the bustle of Union Square, Thé Adoré has a French Country style by way of Japan sensibility and a wide variety of teas, savory snacks and sweets.

 A weathered staircase leads to a rustic, peaceful tearoom punctuated by simple farm tables and chairs. Upstairs, you can order a pot of tea and an impossibly adorable tart and while the afternoon away by the big picture window. The staff is known for being a little particular (they will insist on serving certain teas without milk and don’t even try to ask for jam with your brioche!) but always friendly and they’ll let you stay for hours.

Or, if it’s a nice day, grab a snack to go and take a stroll through near-by Washington Square Park.

Tailor

If you’re into cocktails but bored with vodka sodas maybe a Masala Hot Toddy, with tamarind syrup and garam masala rum or a Waylon, a concoction of smoked coke syrup and bourbon is more your speed. I like a little adventure in my mixed drinks and Tailor never disappoints. Cocktails are made artfully with incredible attention to detail: my Crumble (brown butter rum, clove and Poiré) was poured into a glass punctuated by one large perfectly square ice cube. You can splurge on dinner upstairs if you like, or fill up on gourmet corn dogs and porkbelly with miso and butterscotch, like we did.

Oh, and the sweet, salty and spicy popcorn, served in modern white vessels, is totally addictive. We went through three bowls.

Tailor’s warm, cavernous bar is the perfect post-shopping spot for a creative cocktail and snack.
