Profile

Recently Opened!

The work of Walt Whitman, born 200 years ago next May, in part informed the name for this Union Square Hospitality Group restaurant. Manhatta has 90 seats on the 60th floor of 28 Liberty, the redone landmarked Financial District building formerly known as One Chase Manhattan Plaza, which has helpfully been renamed for its street address. All of this is to say that Manhatta was built from scratch, from pieces of old and new New York, and it’s every bit the stately restaurant you’d expect. It also seems like a great place to drink, with a handsome black-walnut bar that stretches a staggering 40 feet. Beverage director Matt Whitney’s wine list skews French and focuses on Burgundy. The cocktail list sports a namesake drink, and others are based on the general theme of a classic Manhattan. Chef Jason Pfeifer most recently cooked at Maialino, which he helped open. It might be tempting to try to ID the gist of a bygone New York in the menu, and Pfeifer says his process included detours through an old cookbook or two. Maybe there’s a touch of Delmonico’s in the fried oysters, or an intimation of Gilded Age pizzazz in the grilled lamb, or a hint of the Côte Basque in the quenelles, made with lobster, not pike. But Pfeifer says his past experience classic French at Per Se, American with a Japanese influence at Gramercy Tavern, and eight years of precision braising and pasta at Maialino serves as prereq work for the new space.
