Tucked into trendy TiBeCa in New York, Manhattan Proper is the latest in sports bar sophistication. The perfect after work destination, it offers up a wonderfully appealing place to enjoy a bit of food, savor a few drinks and even catch a game - whatever game you like - on one of the enormous 70" televisions that surround the bar.



Manhattan Proper offers an array of stylish menu options, beginning with small bites. These include everything from delctable truffle fries to sliders. The salads are just as luxurious but delicious, pairing well with beer, wine or spirits. Burgers and sandwiches are next on the list, and even entrees make an appearance. When you want atmosphere and good food, Manhattan Proper is for you.

I made an open table reservation for 8pm Friday and traveled into the city for a rare date night with my husband when we arrived at the restaurant there was no hostess and the bartender told us that it was reserved for a “private party” and not accepting other dining options. He said someone was supposed to block the reservations for the evening. However that obviously was not done. This was extremely disappointing.

Made a reservation for a small holiday get together and the restaurant was having a private party that had the whole place rented out. They’d not let us know, so we had to scramble to find a new place.

I've been to Manhattan Proper twice and on both occasions, I was impressed by the quality of service, as well as the quality of the meal. The menu is not extensive but the food is delicious. The waitstaff is friendly and attentive. The restaurant is well-lit and appropriate for a business luncheon. I'm looking forward to making a visit to take in the sports bar aspect.

Amazing service - they were attentive and we came on Pulsd deal, which was amazing! They didn't have the desserts we ordered so they gave us complimentary ones :) Will be coming back.

Loud but it’s a sports bar. Not the best place for a business meeting. Burger was okay. Fries very good.

They have the best buffalo cauliflower I have ever had. Their samon burger is also amazing. I recommend this place to everyone I talk to and always bring new friends there.

I work in the area but had never gone there. Went with a friend for lunch. She had the salmon burger and I had the cowboy burger. Both were so good! Mine came with french fries that were so crispy and not oily. My friend had never been there either but we are both going to go back.

Extremely quiet...we were the only ones sitting in the dining area. Maybe this is a bar-only experience.

My fiancé and I came in for a late dinner. We had the truffle Mac and cheese and turkey sliders to start and shared the salmon entree. The food and drinks were delicious. A very cool option for a causal dinner in a fun, cool atmosphere. I'll be back and would recommend !

Manhattan Proper was a great spot for a superb meal with a friend. We ordered the nachos locos as an app, and they were so loco in the best way. Then I had the Southwest Chicken Sandwich, which has just the right spice. For drinks, we had Westside Mules and they were delicious. The perfect Moscow Mule with a twist. Our server was also so sweet and fun. I'll definitely be back!!

Great service and after 9 you generally have the bar to yourself! Good french fries too, super tasty. Really crunchy and the other food is pretty good too.
