Some photos from Morton's

Morton's, Mandarin Oriental
This was a belated dinner treat that was a long time in coming. :) Morton's of Chicago has so far not disappointed. From the warm bustling ambience to the perceptive spontaneity in service, the restaurant made visible effort to justify what one pays for eating here. Sure the prices are hefty but it would also be otherwise difficult to find a place that does better steak and service together.

This was the first time I am having their crab cakes. I have to say that they were $35 good. The same went for the excellent lobster bisque which I admit to being slightly skeptical towards initially. It was a rich, hot and creamy lobster soup with a hint of brandy just on the edge and in my books, it could be the best one around.
