My boss recommended the Ginger Man on a recent trip to New York, so I got to spend some time in this fine establishment. I was suitably impressed.
The selection and quality are fantastic. I had a cucumber saison from Cigar City and Nogne O's imperial rye porter, both of which were good choices from among their 70 or so varieties on tap.
Atmosphere was dark and homey, which of course I love. The Wednesday night that I was there, the place was packed to the gills with most patrons having standing room only. That said, my boss and I got drink service and had our glasses bussed and everything from right where we were standing; service didn't diminish simply because we were table-less. I appreciated that.
I didn't get any food on this visit, so I can't speak to that.
I will definitely be returning to the Ginger Man the next time I'm in the city. I would love to be there when it's a little bit slower so I can sit in quiet contemplation and sip some of their fantastic choices.

Had some time to kill waiting for my train from Penn Station, so I picked this place over the other pubs on the same street based on their advertisement for Sierra Nevada Beer Camp. Silly but I guess advertisement works.
Atmosphere - Nice and comfortable, booths, tables, or bar. I chose table by an outlet to recharge phone.
Quality - Club sandwich was tasty, perfect to compliment my flight of four beers
Service - Waitress was knowledgable and friendly.
Beer selection was great, had beers not available in NH.
Overall I would recommend and go back if in the area again.
