Sunday Cocktail Brunch

$150.00 · 11 Reviews

The best advice I was given (thank you @maria_hannah) was to clear my schedule for the rest of the weekend. Because after doing justice to the spread of food and free-flow of alcoholic beverages, simply rolling home to be a starfish was already an arduous task.
An adults-only affair, the Sunday Cocktail Brunch takes place between 12noon and ‪3pm‬ within the sexy, mirrored-ceiling space that is the Manhattan Bar. For the three hours we were there, my niece Amanda and I had a lot of fun discovering the wide variety of offerings from the food buffet and drink sections set up at opposite ends of the room, as well as trying out the mini-sized gourmet hot items from the menu.
Like every guest, we were first warmly welcomed at the entrance with a cocktail but our beverage choices escalated rapidly to include boozy milkshakes, a Mezcal-based Bloody Mary (you can choose to have it concocted with other spirits of course), gin and tonics, as well as a few cocktails (we started with the lighter “Diaspora” and ended strong with the “Fika”). All of them were made to order. What I particularly enjoyed were the two mind-boggling arrays of condiments we had at our disposal to dress up our drinks. That is how I ended up decking out my Bloody Mary in “bak kwa”, fresh herbs, sticks of cucumber and celery plus a dash of hot sauce, and Amanda’s G&T got prettied up with fresh fruit. I may have been rather minimalist decorating my raspberry-chocolate and hazelnut liqueur milkshake with Valrhona crunchy chocolate balls but Amanda didn’t play coy as she heaped nuts and fruit on her pineapple and almond liqueur version.
For food, the chilled seafood was our first stop. So pleased to see they had Alaskan King crab legs, Boston lobsters, Hokkaido scallops, oysters, ceviche and more. Next was the delicatessen section where we filled our plates with a few fresh mixed salads, cheeses (love the Taleggio and Brie most), excellent Italian cold cuts and marinated fish (the Drunken Gin Salmon and Marinated Anchovies were our top picks). It was the carvery after that. I zeroed in on the bourbon BBQ pork ribs as I am not into lamb but Amanda was happy to help herself to the mustard-crusted leg of lamb and whisky-infused Cajun lamb rack.
If you have a sweet tooth, you’ll be delighted to know the desserts at this brunch can be a meal in itself. Apart from the line-up of mini cakes and pastries (don’t miss out on the American Cheesecake, an amazing light-as-air scrumptiousness), there is also straight-from-the-pan Crepe Suzette. Make sure to pop a scoop of the Tahitian vanilla ice-cream to enjoy it a la mode.

While the peanut butter and foie gras may ply richness of different currencies, their collaboration affords the gustatory equivalent of sweet Bukit Timah prime estate. 4/5

This was a hosted meal, courtesy of Manhattan Bar. The Sunday Cocktail Brunch is available from 11.30am to 3.30pm every Sunday.

And here, mes amis, is a whole striploin, roasted and just waiting to be carved into. This is Manhattan's take on the iconic Philly Cheese Steak, complete with shrooms, caramelised onions, a whole range of sauces, and a raclette of Monterey Jack cheese at their "Build Your Own Cheese Steak" counter. It's only available during their Adults-Only Sunday Cocktail Brunch, so make your reservations and head down this weekend for this beauty.


[PART 2] @manhattan_sg's Sunday Cocktail Brunch features a cutting board with the chef's roast-of-the-day.
I had a few juicy and tender slices of the wonderful NY sirloin that's served with their peppery homemade signature sauce. Having that beef reminded me of Christmas, just that it was so good, it was a celebration in itself.
The cocktail brunch (S$150++ and very worth it) is only available on Sundays from 1130-1530 and making reservations are highly recommended.

Thanks to the wonderful hospitality of Andreana, Chef Nicholas and Bar Manager Philip. Also, thank you @Burpple for the invite!


Vying for seconds of the sweet aromatic Maple-Pecan Cronut, what we called the "very naughty" Negroni Creme Brûlée and the sinfully indulgent White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cigar. One of the better ways to shrug off all stress with this Sunday brunch hour, where only adults are permitted entry, free flow of delectable delights, the alcohol game's strong and you'd probably be more than just tipsy after the meal. Why not. [Special thankyou to @burpple and the lovely Andreana, Chef Nicolas of @manhattan_sg for organizing this brunch.]
Sundays only 1130hrs-1530hrs

These are some of the sweets - the alcoholic desserts which include the efficiently heavy-handed Negroni Crème Brulee and electrifyingly sour Margarita Dome are highlights, while elsewhere the White Chocolate Peanut Butter Bar plays like a sinfully indulgent valentine to peanut butter lovers.


My favouritest cocktail at @manhattan_sg Manhattan Bar Sunday cocktail brunch! I wish I can have a glass of this now to beat the sweltering heat. 💦😖 #EileenWantsToCampHere #Cocktail #Brunch #Drink #FSTaste #FourSeasons #ManhattanSG #RegentSingapore #SundayBrunch

Not only they are well known for their cocktail, their Sunday brunch also serve a wide variety of dishes. Free flow of cocktails, beer, seafood, cheese and hot dishes. Excellent service and seriously good food!

Free-flow of this yummilicious, fun-sized pork cheek burger assembled with paprika buns and coleslaw if you're at @manhattan_sg's Sunday cocktail brunch right now!


If you're heading to Manhattan for their first installment of the Sunday cocktail brunch, make sure you sample all five of their homemade cream cheeses: salmon, blueberry, sundried tomatoes, blue cheese, and herb & chive. My favourite combo has gotta be the toasted onion bagel, slathered with blue cheese and garnished with blackforest ham and shaved asparagus.
