Happy Birthday to my lovely wife Mrs. Twisted . A gentleman would never reveal the age of his bride, all I know is that she will always going to be younger than me. She has been hinting at going out for a really nice steak dinner so I inquired around with others who I know attend a lot of business dinners. I weighed all the options and settled on Morton's of Chicago The Steak House as the place to have that wonderful birthday dinner for her. We live in southern California and we have so many amazing and sometimes exclusive places to have a meal. The last time we were in Chicago, we had dinner at the Chop House and thankfully it was covered as a business expense but that was the best tasting steak dinner either of us had had. With that baseline or reference point Mortons had some work to do to eclipse that great meal. I made reservations online for an early dinner to reduce the crowd issues. I dislike eating in a crowded restaurant and dealing with rude people. Started with soup, lobster bisque for me and sweet onion soup for the Mrs. We both selected fillet mignon and baked potato. The jury was divided as if it was the best but it would be like apples and kumquats. She had Prime rib in Chicago and I had a New York cut. But this was the best fillet she ever had and I thought they were on par as far as food was concerned. Mortons had the ambiance and wonderful music softly playing. Dean Martin, Bobby Darin & Frank Sinatra giving you to feeling that it was 1961.
It reminded me of the places in Hollywood. Look over Mrs. Twisted right shoulder(lower picture). Yes That is the Pope. Look over my right shoulder, that's Bob Hope. Lots of movie stars and sports legends have their pictures on the walls. If you would like to eat where both The Pope and Mr Hope once ate, this is the place. Seriously, the dinner was wonderful and I highly recommend it to anyone in who is looking for a delicious steak dinner. t Be prepared to sell off the first born male though. Not for the feint of wallet but once in a while it's nice to splurge on the one you love.
Always nice to dress up and enjoy a wonderful evening together with my bride, especially on her birthday. Happy Birthday my sweet bride.
