THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Morton's, The Steakhouse Restaurant Review

: Morton's is synonymous with steak from the U.S. to Asia, and the reason for its notoriety is simple: Morton's knows steak and prepares it well. Indulgence is what this local outpost of the chain is all about, with a side of attentive service. Choose from steaks such as the Chicago-style Prime bone-in rib-eye and the five peppercorn-rubbed Prime strip steak. For something from the sea, consider choices like the Chilean sea bass filet a la nage and the whole baked Maine lobsters. Morton's serves it all up in a classic oak, leather-bound and plush upholstered setting. Seasonal wine and cocktail and spirits tastings at the bar, hosted by bartenders schooled in the science of mixology, draw a well-heeled crowd that invariably stays for dinner.
