Morton's The Steakhouse Restaurant Review: Morton’s attracts local sports heroes, celebrities and those comfortable paying top dollar for fine dining. The real reason to come to this downtown steakhouse, though, is for one of the aged, quality porterhouses, available in one-and-a-half pound or three-pound cuts. To avoid ruining your appetite, go easy on the starters --- we like the ahi tower and the prosciutto-wrapped mozzarella. Sides are standard steakhouse fare and sized for sharing and include creamed spinach, sautéed Brussels sprouts and twice-baked au gratin potatoes. If you’re not in the mood for beef, you can secure a good chicken dish or a fresh piece of salmon or sea bass as well. A notable wine list complements the fare. For dessert, don’t miss the sundae piled high with toppings. Service is professional. Lighter fare and stiff martinis are served during twice-daily happy hours at Bar 1221, the restaurant's intimate lounge.
