Morton’s The Steakhouse is an American institution. Their classic cocktails, choice wine selection and premium steaks have been an upscale dining staple for nearly 40 years. Morton’s Sacramento location recently renovated their dining space to a more modern look while still keeping the vibe classy.
Morton’s recently invited SacFoodies to a wine and dine night to celebrate the newly renovated restaurant. The event featured custom cocktails, a smattering of small bites and a great selection of wine, from Shiraz to Cabernet.
We were greeted with a selection of cocktails: Manhattans, French 75s and Raspberry Cosmopolitans. They were refreshing and tasty, perfect in the middle of a classic Sacramento heat wave.
Next, we got to taste crab cake sliders and delicious petite seared lamb chops. However, the highlight of the evening for me was the freshly cut steak sandwiches, paired with a fresh bun and horseradish. The steak was perfectly cooked and paired nicely with the Cabernet being served. The sandwiches were cut and served to order, allowing us to choose our cooking preparedness preference (I went with medium rare).
If you’re looking for a place for after work cocktails or want to have a classy night out, it’s hard to go wrong with a restaurant as reliable as Morton’s.
