    As long as they don't close down too many locations, and don't mess with the rest of the formula. They seem to have great consistency and quality from location to location. They really do know how serve an outstanding steak.

      We had a very disappointing meal there in Toronto. The food was fine but the service was abismal. Which was very unlike the experiences I've had at the one on La Cieniga. Has anyone been to the new one downtown yet?

        The Morton's in Chicago (of course), Atlanta, Boston and New York were all wonderful experiences. The New York Mortons was across the street from the WTC, wonder if it is still there?

          I've been to the new downtown LA branch. Just as good as La Cienega, and quite a fashionable bar to boot.

          I agree. Quite yummy steaks with equally yummy sides. My favorite combo is the following:

          "Double Filet Mignon, Sauce Bearnaise" (a damn fine steak, and absolutely the best bearnaise sauce I have ever had)

          "Sauteed Mushrooms" (again, the best I have ever had -- simply to die for)

          "Steamed Asparagus, Sauce Hollandaise" (creamy, delicious hollandaise, and be sure to order the asparagus "extra tender" for good measure)

          "Lyonnaise Potatoes" (good old-fashioned fried potatoes and onions -- simple, delicious and a perfect complement to the above fare)

            I love their New York steak, and the mushrooms are good. I would inhale the whole "onion roll" if I did not care what my dining mates thought. If I ever get off of The Liquid Diet, I would love to try the double Porterhouse, all for myself, but then that would probably put me back on The Liquid Diet.
