I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to the Ginger Man. I loved walking in and being faced by over 60 beer taps and two hand pumps. Between the 60 draughts and the 100 or so bottled beers, many of which I've never had the chance to taste, the selection was awesome.

I sampled a number of beers in addition to the ones that I actually paid for so it was my kind of service. The bartender was knowledgeable, friendly and took a lot of time discussing the beer with me. Of course, I had my BA hat on so maybe that was the reason.

I found the prices reasonable for Manhatten. Some of the bottles are pricey but it would take me many moons to get beyond the draft selection.

The food was excellent. The bartender got the soup wrong in her description so she comped the soup. Three of us got out under $60 for about five or six drafts, soups, sandwiches or salads. I consider that a bargain. Well, considering tip, it was higher but worth it.

I will definitely be making a return trip on my next visit to NYC, but there are many other spots that I also hope to visit. (1,067 characters)

Since discovering this place in 2013, every time I am in New York City I stop in. Great atmosphere and layout of the place. Beer list is impressive and prices are reasonable for the city. The food is good; also $3 for a soft pretzel of the size and quality is a very good value if you're looking for something inexpensive to munch on. Absolutely worth your time to stop in. (373 characters)
