Uptown or Downtown, Morton's Serves 'The Best Steak Anywhere!'

The first Morton’s The Steakhouse opened in Chicago in 1978. Now Morton’s has 40 years of service under its belt and dozens of locations to its name, both in the U.S. and abroad. Come celebrate 40 years of fine steak, fine wine, and more at one of two Morton's locations in Manhattan! Bring a date, business associate, or a whole party to either location for an outstanding meal and impeccable service. Here’s everything you need to know about Morton’s The Steakhouse in Midtown East and the Financial District.

The Steak

Morton's the Steakhouse

Morton’s selects from only the top two percent of domestic beef, from an elite category of steak labeled “Prime” by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Each steak is evaluated for its marbling, color, and texture, then aged for nearly a month. Two all-around winners on the steak portion of the menu are the fall-apart filet mignon and the hearty Chicago-style bone-in ribeye. These are expertly paired with sides like bacon macaroni and cheese, pan-fried potatoes Lyonnaise, and Chicago-style horseradish mashed potatoes.

Seafood and Other Delicious Dishes 

Morton’s has its turf covered, but it also serves up surf, snacks, and desserts. Order the bacon-wrapped scallops for an incredible seafood appetizer and Chilean sea bass as an entree. At the bar, order low-priced snacks like the parmesan truffle fries for $8 and petite filet mignon sandwiches for $9. You’ll find these and other deals on bar bites on weeknights from 4:30 to 6:30 and 9pm to closing. And no matter what you do, order dessert! Morton’s is known for its perfect key lime pie, while the Legendary Hot Chocolate Cake lives up to its name completely.
