Morton's The Steakhouse Restaurant Review: The Morton's chain is all about quality steaks, salads and sides with plenty of seafood items thrown in to diversify the portfolio. The originator of the show-and-tell tableside menu, Morton's lays it on thick. But it's a good thick, and it's a fine place for good food and a good time in a clubby atmosphere. After a liquid cocktail (Mortinis, anyone?), dive into a shrimp or jumbo (a word frequently appearing on the menu) lump crab meat cocktail to start. Oysters Rockefeller feels right at home here, too. Chopped salad is a meal in its own. For meat and potato fans, we favor the porterhouse and the hashed browns. Chicken Bianco and Chilean sea bass cater to non-red meat eaters. Sides such as creamed spinach, sour cream mashed potatoes, and bacon and onion macaroni and cheese are à la carte, and large enough to share. A gluten-free menu is available on request. There's nothing like a refreshing piece of Key lime pie or Morton's hot chocolate cake (so legendary, it’s trademarked as such) to wind up a steakhouse dinner. For those seeking the art of the deal (aka lighter bills), Morton’s “power hour” offers special pricing on drinks and bites at the bar, where there’s also a prime burger with fries.
