Man­hat­tan Bar

Food and Travel (Singapore) - - Drink -

Man­hat­tan Bar brings new flavours to the ta­ble by do­ing away with lofty Soho for live­lier soul­ful Har­lem. The dis­trict, north of New York’s Man­hat­tan bor­ough, known for its African-Amer­i­can in­flu­ence in cul­ture and the arts, soul food, and South­ern com­forts, is the in­spi­ra­tion for Man­hat­tan’s new menu. It boasts five clas­sic craft cock­tails with a twist and four gourmet bar bites, all of which al­lude to an iconic per­son, place, or moment sig­nif­i­cant to the Har­lem dis­trict.

The Gin & Juice (S$24) is a cock­tail of gin, pink grape­fruit juice, maraschino, sea salt, egg white, and Cham­pagne, and a tribute to Snoop Dogg’s “Gin and Juice” sin­gle, while the Bar­ber Shop (S$23), a mix of Bow­more 12Y scotch, raspberry liqueur, hi­bis­cus syrup, lime juice, cu­cum­ber, mint leaves and gin­ger beer, with its red and white bar­ber pole straw, speaks of the fos­tered re­la­tion­ships within the com­mu­nity that was es­tab­lished through the many beauty sa­lons and bar­ber shops. Also, on the new menu are, Lenox (S$23), Red Rooster (S$24), and Glo­be­trot­ter (S$22) – an al­lu­sion to the basketball team Har­lem Glo­be­trot­ters, com­plete with a side of pret­zels.

Have some bar bites to go with your drink with dishes like South­ern Corn­bread (S$10) served with warm maple pecan but­ter and Pi­mento cheese, Fried Green toma­toes (S$16), Ba­nana Cream Cook­ies (S$12), and the quin­tes­sen­tial dish of the Har­lem Dis­trict, Chicken & Waf­fle (S$18) spiced up with house-made hot sauce.
