Choose Between Two Options
- $12 for $24 worth of Southern-style steak-house brunch, valid Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The brunch menu features pork-belly eggs benedict ($12) and a shrimp frittata ($10) that mixes eggs, shrimp, tomato, herbs, and parmesan cheese into fluffy bites. Lunch includes Southern-inspired sandwiches such as the fried-green-tomato burger ($13)—a half pound of Angus beef, bacon, fried green tomato, and pimento-cheese spread—and the open-faced dungeness-crab melt ($11).
Manhattan's eccentric interior resembles a Victorian hunting lodge at first blush—but then it becomes apparent that the horns on the mounted ram's head transform into golden machine guns. This twisted taxidermy is actually a sculpture by Peter Gronquist, and it's one of several pieces of dining-room decor that demand a double take. What appear to be floral patterns on the wallpaper are actually baroque deer skulls, and the vintage photograph inside the north wall's gold frame is constantly changing, displayed by a projector. Even the bar holds curiosities behind its cowhide panels: it was once an apothecary's shelf, used for arranging remedies at a time when whiskey was thought to cure headaches and long boat rides were prescribed to treat scurvy.
In this Wonderland-like setting, the aromas of steak and contemporary comfort food permeate the airspace. Staples such as mac ‘n’ cheese receive Southern upgrades, with bites of pork belly folded into the creamy pasta and small plates of fried green tomatoes arriving with housemade tartar sauce. As evening rolls around, dinner entrees pile seared sea scallops over cheese grits and pair grilled pork tenderloin with red-eye gravy and mashed potatoes. Lavish dishes have been enjoyed by Bill Gates and other figures of affluence, according to The Daily Meal, which is why Manhattan is one the restaurants featured in Where Billionaires Eat.
