A 60th floor entrant from Danny Meyer in FiDi.

 

Eater says Whitman's poem "Mannahatta" is the obvious inspiration for the name.  That certainly seems to be what the publicist thinks. I don't know what was in the head of whoever named it, but isn't a more obvious inspiration the Paul Strand documentary "Manhatta," which is at least spelled the same?
