Morton’s Has Moved!
Many Sacramentans may know that Morton’s has been a long-time resident of the area, but did you know that Morton’s recently made the move from 521 L Street over to 621 Capitol Mall? Thanks to an invitation from their friendly staff, I was able to attend a sneak preview of the new location for lunch. As a first-timer at Morton’s, I was equally impressed with the décor and the food.
I knew what I was going to order the second I laid eyes on the menu – the Lobster Bisque to start and their Sliced New York Sirloin for my entrée. For my dining partner-in-crime, it would be the Colossal Shrimp Alexander followed by the Chicken Christopher. Truth be told, it didn’t really matter who ordered what, there was a mutual understanding that everything on the table would be fair game. After placing our order, we immediately dove into the massive bread round that graced our table.
The Lobster Bisque and Colossal Shrimp Alexander turned out to be a great way to start our lunch. The Bisque was both creamy and light, while the Colossal Shrimp truly stood up to its name – each shrimp was practically the size of my hand.
When our chicken and sirloin dishes arrived, we were almost too full to indulge. The sirloin was surprising as I didn’t realize we’d ordered a sandwich until it arrived. But with grilled onions and mushrooms, this sandwich was a pleasant surprise.
The Chicken Christopher was also delicious. Coated in bread crumbs and lightly sprinkled with lemon juice, this dish is a must-try. To be honest, we originally chose it because of the name – how can someone named Chris not order the Chicken Christopher?! That turned out to be a blessing in disguise – had I known what Chicken Christopher was before dining at Morton’s, I probably would have tried it anyways.
With the same great menu and a brand new home, Morton’s in downtown Sacramento is certainly one to keep in mind when planning business lunches or evenings out. Have you been to the new location? Let us know what you think by leaving a comment below!
