We say…

New-York inspired Manahatta on Merrion Street is bringing a slice of Big Apple magic to Leeds city centre. This bar and restaurant is the perfect multifunctional setting to try some sophisticated American-style dining followed by drinks at the extensive bar. 

Housed in a gorgeous multi-storey building, Manahatta is an expertly stylish venue. With large turquoise leather booths, modern art features, low-hanging exposed light bulbs and exposed white brick, Manahatta blends the industrial with the fashionable perfectly. Exuding a New York hipster edge, Manahatta is the perfect place to bring friends for a night out that starts with food and ends with dancing. 

With American cuisine being their major influence but with Asian inspiration featured throughout the menu, Manahatta is big on flavoursome food. For starters, opt for the tempura king prawns with oriental sauce or the deep fried brie wedges with caramelised onion chutney. Favourite mains include the rustic ciabatta steak melt with caramelised red onions and wholegrain mustard mayonnaise and the Manahatta crispy chicken served with skin on fries, house slaw and chipotle BBQ dip. Seeing as the restaurant is so well-suited to groups, there are sharing dishes such as the beef chilli nachos to split between friends. Make sure you leave room for dessert though: the pecan pie and the banoffee cookie crust cheesecake may prove hard to resist. 

Head to bar for cocktails after dinner, where you'll find happy hour on every day (at varying times, so check the menus). Enjoy the East Side Cosmo featuring vodka, cointreau, aperol, guava, lemon, pineapple, passionfruit syrup and ginger: it's described as Asia, meets New York, meets Leeds!

For a great night out with food that's as fun as the venue, get down to Manahatta. Your budget might not stretch to New York, but Manahatta is pretty close.
