Honoring the family’s longstanding steakhouse tradition, Morton brothers Michael and David announced the name of their highly anticipated new restaurant set to open in May, MB Steak—“MB” standing for “Morton Brothers.”
“There’s no question of the imprint my father made on his children,” said Michael of his father Arnie Morton, who debuted Morton’s of Chicago in 1978. The Morton family has since collectively spurred more than 100 chain and independent restaurants throughout the U.S.
“We grew up with such admiration for him for the superior quality of his restaurants and clubs; he was meticulous. David and I spend so much time trading stories about our own venues, it just makes sense to put family tradition and our own experience into a joint project.”
David and Michael have more than two-dozen restaurants and bars to their credit, but MB Steak marks the first time that any of the siblings have partnered on a project. MB Steak will occupy a 7,000 square foot space inside the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in the southwest corner of the property.
“We can’t aim for anything less than to deliver the best; to redefine the steakhouse as our father did with Morton’s,” David says.
