Morton's The Steakhouse Restaurant Review

: Morton’s steaks are even bigger than its reputation as watering holes for political bigwigs. The real reason to come is for one of the aged, top-quality porterhouses, available in one-and-a-half- or three-pound cuts. To avoid ruining your appetite, go easy on the starters---perhaps a house salad or a plate of sliced beefsteak tomatoes with red onion and blue cheese. As a side, one of the football-sized baked potatoes does nicely. The service is excellent, as is the wine list, and, if you are not in the mood for beef, you can secure a good chop or a fresh piece of salmon.
