Morton's The Steakhouse Restaurant Review

: In this clubby, comfortable and masculine setting, the waitstaff presents the menu in flashy show-and-tell style, holding up gigantic lobsters, various hunks of meat wrapped in plastic, and potatoes the size of footballs to make their point. Starters include short rib steak tacos, raw oysters and jumbo lump crab meat cocktail. Then come the massive entrées, such as a 48-ounce double porterhouse and five-peppercorn-rubbed strip steak. Morton's menu also offers good prime rib and lamb chops, as well as Maine lobster and grilled salmon (both flown in fresh daily). Satisfying sides include potatoes Lyonnaise or creamed spinach, and there’s raspberry soufflé and Key lime pie for dessert. The wine list is adequate.
