Awhile ago Kiyo and I had some deal, per usual (I don’t remember if it was Groupon or HowAboutWe or something else) for Morton’s near my office. We sat in the bar / lounge area, which had a good amount of space for a New York City establishment. We didn’t feel cramped or too close to other people, which was nice, as we enjoyed a strong cocktail.
Kiyo and I shared two bar bites, which start at only $6 and are surprisingly large, so a great value. We had the house-made potato chips with blue cheese dressing and the petite filet mignon sandwiches with mustard mayonnaise (I assume this is a mixture of mustard and mayo, not sure why they don’t just add an “and” between the two). Both dishes were simple yet wonderfully executed, and were cute little riffs on your standard steakhouse meat and potatoes. The chips were totally addicting and we ate all of them, but they would be good to split between four people. The meat was super tender and flavorful; the overall quality and flavor were uncompromising, and yet for very little money we were both totally stuffed and satisfied.
