Morton’s, that old friend. Morton’s is like the Cheers of steakhouses. What you sacrifice in originality you make up for in ease and familiar calm. Not to mention high quality red meat. The staff at Morton’s will see to your every need and make your party feel welcome from the start. Low key is the name of the game here, which is great since the Bachelor in your party thinks ketchup is a perfectly acceptable condiment for a $50 fillet. It isn’t, but Morton’s won’t ruin his good time. Good old Morton.
Show up early from 4-6 and every drink in the house is $6. By New York standards that’s cheaper than the drinks at the scummiest dive bar in the city.
Signature Dish: 48 oz. Porterhouse for two has made this steakhouse chain famous. You can’t go wrong with this pick.
Attire: Jeans and a collar shirt.
Vibe: Not as self-impressed as the others on this list but no less quality. That said, you sacrifice the cool only-in-New York for an amazing steak cooked great every time.
What’s next?: MAD46 Lounge, the Campbell Apartment, Scores, or just head West til you hit Times Square.
