Morton’s, the classic Steakhouse at 750 West Cordova, has sadly closed. We don’t have any details as of yet regarding causation, but a general contraction on the part of “the world’s largest operator of company-owned upscale steakhouses” shouldn’t come as too much of a shocker in the worst recession since the Early Triassic. Read the statement from the company after the jump.
Morton’s The Steakhouse is the leading fine dining steakhouse brand, earning our reputation over 31 years. We own and operate 77 steakhouses worldwide, and Morton’s is recognized as the place where top business leaders as well as celebrities and professional athletes frequent. Morton’s features USDA grain fed prime aged beef, the top 2% of all US beef available, along with its genuine Midwestern hospitality, which is second to none.
In this current economic environment, we made the very difficult decision to close the Vancouver restaurant. That restaurant originally opened in 2000, and today our company’s focus is finding premium locations in the cities where we operate.
Morton’s truly appreciates the dedication and hard work of all of the impacted employees and has offered assistance in a number of ways, including the opportunity to transfer to another Morton’s location, based on availability.
We want to truly recognize and thank our loyal Vancouver guests who supported us for so many years, and we look forward to their next dining visit at our other Morton’s steakhouses.
Here’s hoping those who were employed there quickly land comfortably elsewhere.
