Beauty products. Fashion. Cuisine. Don't the French always seem to do everything better? And, while we may not have a one-way ticket to the City of Lights at our disposal, there's no denying we can all use a little dose of la vie Parisienne — be it a dozen macarons or the latest issue of Vogue Paris — every now and then.
New York City is a multicultural mecca, so it's no surprise there are little doses of French culture hiding behind every corner, from the freshest baguettes this side of the Atlantique, to where to find those beauty products normally only available at pharmacies overseas. We've rounded up some major cafés, boutiques, and theaters that will satisfy your Parisian cravings — no boarding pass required.
