Eat New York is the first restaurant from the team behind Manchester's favourite street food vendor.

In addition to the butter-dunked bagels Eat New York made their name with, expect burgers, loaded fries, deep-fried pickles (‘Frickles’) and decadent desserts. Their legendary ‘Reuben’ is made with pastrami that’s cured for 14 days and then smoked in-house for 15 hours.

To complement the menu, the Eat New York bar serves creative twists on classic New York cocktails. The space also doubles up as a late-night venue, The Bagel Shop, with regular club nights. With minimalist decor and a laidback atmosphere, it offers the kind of understated cool the Northern Quarter first became famous for.

Kids menu, gluten-free, vegan and veggie options all available.

OFFERS
*2-4-1 cocktails every day from 5pm.

The service from the young lady was exceptional and she is a real asset.
The brisket was far to salty, hopefully just a one off, it has the makings of something really good

Despite advertising 50% off on Tuesday and Wednesday this wasn’t deducted when the bill came. Food was great. Waitress was nice just a poor end to the meal.

Small menu, no salmon in a bagel brunch establishment was a joke

We chose ENY for our wedding anniversary dinner because we got engaged in New York and it didn’t disappoint. The staff were attentive, the service fast, and the food was absolutely delicious. My husband has the Ruben and I had the pastrami burger - both were excellent. Cocktails are quite pricey individually but are 2 for 1 before 10pm so are fine if you have two of the same one. We had a table for 20.15 and were the first ones there so the atmosphere was a bit lacking initially but a complimentary glass of fizz helped! We’ll definitely be back and will bring our NY-loving friends with us.

Staff was really helpful in replacing my friends order with something else when she wasn’t happy with her first order. They were lovely about it and replaced the order right away. Food was incredible. Could do with more vegan options however.

The food is always outstanding and the staff are super friendly! I think it’s always great value for money but the 241 cocktails and 50% off food in Feb made it even better. I recommend Eat New York to everyone, it’s one of my favourite places in Manchester.

Extremely poor service! The fryer was broken (these things happen) so we just had the bagels - which were delicious. I would recommend the food as what we had ordered was good but the service was so appalling I don’t think I’ll ever go back.

Hi Heather! Cheers for the review. Glad you enjoyed the food - apologies again for the lack of fryer. Agreed, that was less than ideal. Regarding the service - 'appalling'? Ouch. According to our staff there were no issues other than maybe a slightly longer wait at times because we were really busy when you came in. We're a pretty friendly bunch and go out of our way to make everyone feel welcome and well taken care of. Please do come back and we'll give you a massive hug to prove it.

The food was delicious - veggie option and the Eat NY bagel were perfect. Frickles and loaded fries were really tasty too. Cocktail prices were a little expensive for me at over £10 but beer and wine were great. The service was really efficient and friendly and atmosphere was ok, a little quiet for a Friday night but lovely all the same.

Hi Sally! Thanks a lot for the review, really glad you liked the food! Did you not make the most of the 2-4-1 deal on our cocktails? Every day from 5pm ;). The only one over £10 is the Toasted Marshmallow Manhattan at £12, but it is pretty special - and boozy! Hope you make it back to try them x

Chose to come here because of the January 50% off food deal we saw online. We both ordered the reuben sandwhich which, considering the hype, was dissapointing. The meat was very fatty and cut too think. When we got the bill they had tried to charge us full cost for the sandwiches. We queried this and was told they weren't part of the 50% deal. No where online did it say that and the waitress who took our order never said a thing either. We argued this and they initially tried to offer 25% off before finally, after much discussion, conceded and honoured the offer. I wouldn't choose to come back here even at 50% off.

Hi there! Pretty gutted to read this review. Apologies once again for the miscommunication regarding the offer. However, our waitress apologised and gave you the 50% discount, not really sure what more we could have done. If you'd mentioned any problems with the food, we would have gladly tried to rectify that too. We're not too sure what you expected but the fatty cuts are an essential part of a good Reuben Sandwich. At least we agree on one thing.. you shouldn't come back!

I loved the Reuben though it looked a little lonely on the plate. My friend's bagel was said to be delicious. Sides were a bit of a let down. The fries were distinctly overcooked. Fun to nibble with a beer as crunchy sticks but not what they should have been. The portion of beans had been of the right flavour and consistency at one time but while the flavour remained, there were clumps of dried together beeans showing distinct heat lamp type fatigue. Given that the delicious beef was largely unadorned the sides assume considerable importance.
