A CLOSER LOOK AT THIS WEEK’S HOUSE SPECIAL: MORTON’S LEGENDARY HOT CHOCOLATE CAKE ($18)
With more than 80 locations worldwide, including at Ala Moana Center, Morton’s The Steakhouse has left a delicious mark among steak lovers thanks to its top-notch cuisine and superb service.
“Morton’s has the same vision today as it did (when it first opened) in 1978 — quality, consistency, genuine hospitality,” says concept executive chef Trevor White. “Morton’s always strives to exceed our guests’ experiences through our food, award-winning wine list, atmosphere, genuine hospitality and unparalleled service.”
There are many diners in Honolulu who vouch for White’s words as regulars and newcomers enter Morton’s doors for its exceptional steaks (only USDA prime-aged beef is served), fresh fish and seafood, plus hand-picked produce.
“Whether gathering with friends or enjoying a business dinner, Morton’s guests have come to expect remarkable service and reliable experiences that keep them coming back for more,” continues White. “Our commitment to excellence is unwavering and is showcased in each menu item through the careful preparation and quality ingredients.
“As we succeed, we expand our reputation as the world’s best steakhouse.”
While meat may be in Morton’s The Steakhouse’s name, those who want to indulge even during the upcoming Lent season don’t have to worry. Now through April 12, Morton’s is honoring those who celebrate Lent with Twin Lobster Tails for $39. White emphasizes that reservations are required, so be sure to call ahead to grab a spot.
Whether celebrating a special occasion or just looking for a delightful night out, stop by Morton’s The Steakhouse where everything from its diverse dishes to attentive servers are nothing short of amazing.
For cake’s sake
Concept executive chef Trevor White says that this heavenly moist cake is made from the finest Belgian chocolate from Barry Callebaut, and has been the best-selling dessert at Morton’s for nearly 20 years.
An irresistible flow of molten chocolate steals the show in this decadent dish and is accented by sweet, fresh raspberries and a caramel drizzle.
Cool Haagen-Dazs Vanilla Bean ice cream is the perfect complement to the warm chocolate dessert.
What’s the secret?
Concept executive chef Trevor White shares a pro tip when baking this cake. “Do not over mix the cake batter,” he says. “(And) in order to get the right consistency, bake small individual cakes.”
