Seafood at Morton's
Morton’s The Steakhouse has added a Chilled Ocean Platter to its seafood selections. The platter -- a lobster, colossal shrimp cocktail, jumbo lump crab meat, fresh Bluepoint oysters on the half shell and pre-split Alaskan King Crab legs -- is available in two sizes. The three-to-four person appetizer is $80 and the five-to-six person appetizer is $120.
In addition to adding the Chilled Ocean Platter to its permanent menu, the Cincinnati location is offering a Baked Ocean Platter of sea scallops wrapped in bacon, jumbo lump crab cakes, Oysters Rockefeller and Shrimp Alexander. Two sizes are also available for the Baked Ocean Platter: A $77 platter will serve three to four and $115 platter will serve five to six. Because the dish is still in its testing phase, it will only be available for a limited time.
Morton's The Steakhouse is located at 441 Vine Street in Carew Tower at Fountain Square. Open daily for dinner from 5:30-11 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 5 p.m. -10 p.m. on Sundays. Bar is open daily at 5 p.m.
