Morton’s- Beverly Hills

The Roving Reporter:
The roving reporter LOVES Morton’s! I have been dining with Arnie Morton [now deceased] and Klaus Fritsche since before they founded Morton’s in 1978.  Throughout the ’70s, I hung out during Chicago trade shows at Arnie’s on State Street — a terrific restaurant and bar. I had wonderful meals there and was able to entertain clients very successfully.

Now, 33 years later Morton’s is my restaurant of choice for consistently great food, superb service [Elaine our server at table 52 was camera shy] and a place that does it 100% right.

Last night was no exception.  With a very good friend, I was able to have excellent food, great service in an atmosphere where I could actually have a conversation without blaring music in the “background.”  Add two superb bottles of well-aged Bordeaux and you have what I would rate a perfect evening.

Christopher Garrison GM – I always gladly share our wine with him
