A Day of Mourning For Expense Account Diners Everywhere

For lover's of power dinners in a club-like setting ove a large cut of prime beef, served a la carte sizzling with perhaps a humongous baked potato and broccoli, accompanied by top shelf wine and liquor, the passing of Chicago's Arnie Morton on Saturday was sad.

Founded in the basement of a high-rise in 1978, Morton's of Chicago is the scene of dozens of "You pay for this so I can approve it" conversations every day. Meat lovers everywhere can often recall their first Morton's experience. Ours was in the spring of 2000, in what is fondly refered to in our house as the day we had the best filet ever. Ahhhhh, excess.
