Morton's The Steakhouse

Newberry Plaza, 1050 N. State St.
Chicago, IL 60610

Critic’s Notes

Despite selling out in 2012 to Landry’s, a giant Houston-based restaurant group, Morton’s has not changed. That’s the best possible outcome for the flagship of this celebrated meat paradise, which has retained all the elements that made it a local (and international) legend: the rich wood decor, no-nonsense service, warm onion bread loaves, and, of course, broiled wet-aged Midwestern grain-fed beef. The porterhouse, a gorgeous and almost creamy 24 ounces, is a perfect example of the kind of charred-tender steak that so many Chicagoans favor. Appetizers and sides get equal attention, such as garlic-kissed Shrimp Alexander or impossibly buttery mashed potatoes. Even if you sit at the bar with a blunt cocktail and a silky slice of Key lime pie, you’ll get why Morton’s is still a tradition. (See mortons.com for all locations.)
