If you thought you needed a passport to get to Europe, think again.
Thanks to a slew of authentic European establishments nestled all around the City, New Yorkers only need to hop on a subway to get a taste of continental living.
New York meets London in the West Village; Hungary can be found in Morningside Heights.
With any luck, New Yorkers will never have to set foot in JFK airport again.
Check out six different New York venues that carry over the flavor from across the pond:
This West Village restaurant looks like a dollhouse on the inside, and is famous for its authentic high tea. They also have a huge menu of British food, which is appealing if you're one of the few people who enjoy that kind of cuisine.
After ten years of being situated in the Plaza, Demel is currently on the hunt for its newest location. Potential patrons, it's worth the wait; this bakery is one of the few places to get a Viennese fix this side of the Atlantic.
The Standard Beer Garden, which is part of the Standard Hotel, takes its German "biergarten" theme very seriously. Beer tickets are only sold in advance at the door (like in Germany), and food is limited to pretzels and other token German snacks. Needless to say, most of the beers are right out of Munich.
This church might be on a busy street in Midtown, but the interior transports you right to the Irish countryside, where interesting churches are a dime a dozen. St. Patrick's Cathedral is incredibly unique to America though; it's the largest gothic-style church in the country, and is widely considered a major landmark. The New York church directly resembles Ireland's St. Patrick's Cathedral in aesthetic, and both are major Catholic churches for their respective countries.
Look no further if you're hungry for a bite from Hungary. Ignore the Columbia students toiling away on homework, and scoop up some genuine Hungarian treats at this Morningside Heights bakery.
Le French Diner is more Paris than Lower East Side, although the latter is where it's located. Zucco, the French founder, modeled the restaurant off traditional French truck stops, where "you can go in knowing that the food will be good and cheap," he described. The restaurant is a favorite among Parisians living in New York, so be prepared to hear plenty of French chatting.
