While traveling to France may be a distant dream at the moment, you can now get a taste of Paris in New York City. Century-old French patisserie Angelina Paris opened in Midtown near Bryant Park this month, bringing its beloved hot chocolate, signature Mont-Blanc pastry, and an all-day menu to its first U.S. location.

Measuring over 3,000 square feet, Angelina Paris at 1050 Avenue of the Americas contains a full-service dining room, tearoom, grab-and-go bakery, and a pastry lab on the ground floor. The luxury tearoom resembles the patisserie’s flagship on the Rue de Rivoli, with its early 20th-century Parisian-inspired decorative moldings and beveled mirrors.

The dining room menu offers its famous L’Africain hot chocolate, made in-house with three different types of cocoa beans from Ghana, Niger, and The Ivory Coast, as well as The Mont-Blanc, a pastry made from French meringue. Dedicated breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner menus are available, with a special teatime menu expected to be released soon. The dining room is currently operating at 25 percent capacity.

In addition to sit-down service, Angelina Paris boasts a bakery section that has fresh pastries, sandwiches, hot chocolate, coffee, and cold drinks for takeout and a retail store that sells bottled hot chocolate, spreads, chocolate boxes, and more.

“There is a strong appetite in the United States and New York City, in particular, for the romantic, yet relaxed atmosphere of one of Paris’ most classic tearooms,” Anthony Battaglia, COO of Angelina Paris New York, said. “We are eager to open our doors safely and welcome American consumers in, to enjoy the sophisticated and charming dining and shopping experience of Angelina Paris in the heart of Manhattan.”

Confectioner Antoine Rumpelmayer opened the first Angelina Paris opened in Paris in 1903, naming the pastry shop after his daughter-in-law. Since then, the popular cafe has opened more than 30 locations worldwide. The Bryant Park location will be open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and on Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
