April 29, 2015 // Franchising.com // In honor of National Burger Month in May, Morton’s The Steakhouse locations will offer foodie enthusiasts the opportunity to enjoy the mouth-watering Million Dollar Burger with a glass of Stag’s Leap Winery, ‘The Investor”, Napa Valley. This delectable pairing is only $39 and available in the bar area all day.
Morton’s came into existence today because of its fantastic burgers. Years ago, before co-founders Arnie Morton and Klaus Fritsch really knew one other, they both were employed at the Playboy Club in Montreal. The club was updating their menu, so Klaus cooked a new type of burger for Arnie to try. After taking one bite, Arnie stated that it was the best burger he had ever eaten. From that day forward, they nicknamed Morton’s Prime Burger the “Million-Dollar Hamburger.”
For this special, Morton’s has enhanced this classic dish and created a new menu item called the Million Dollar Burger. The dish features everything from the traditional burger with the addition of decadent foie gras, black truffle butter and braised short ribs all on a tasty brioche bun.
Now more than 3 decades later, Morton’s The Steakhouse has grown to over 70 locations worldwide and is the same today as it was when they opened doors to their first restaurant in Chicago in 1978. Morton’s commitment to excellence is unwavering and is showcased in each menu item through the careful preparation and quality ingredients. 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.
