Restaurateur extraordinaire Danny Meyer’s penthouse Financial District restaurant Manhatta is set to throw open its elevator doors next week on Tuesday, July 17.
Get ready for a French-American menu, three courses for $78, served in the sky-high space on the 60th floor of the 28 Liberty St. tower. Longtime Maialino chef Jason Pfeifer heads up the kitchen here, where a meal could include such luxuries as lobster quenelles with trumpet mushrooms and chervil; wagyu bavette with pommes anna and harbison cheese; and a warm date cake with crème fraîche ice cream and whiskey sauce. The menu sent to email subscribers is below.
Though Meyer has previously told Eater that his goal was a restaurant that he “would want to go to frequently” despite its special occasion-worthy view, the price point at the new Union Square Hospitality Group restaurant suggests something a little different, at least for those without hospitality empires. One could feasibly head up for a drink or $10 snack of tempura scallops, fried oysters, or croque madame, though. Or buy out the attached events space Bay Room when that opens.
Meyer is on a summer opening roll; he recently debuted the more approachable outdoor taqueria Tacocina in Domino Park, though it hasn’t been the most well-received of restaurants so far.
