Special this/that

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

Special this/that

Morton's or Gotham?

Tell me why. I'm taking a very important customer out for his birthday on Thursday & seeing as we Keg every month, something special is in order. He's rich, but he's not a fancy guy (neither am I), and since I only go downtown for Canucks hockey nowadays, I've never been to either.

Okay Pratt, here's one where I'll actually value your opinion.

Let's hear it.

While I am no DP, I'll jump in and recommend Gotham over Mortons. Mortons has that old steakhouse feel - very dark and bad lighting. Decent steaks, though. Gothams has better feel and just as good, if not better, food. In any case, you can't make a bad decision here.

Hey SR...

I'm sorry I can't help you with a personal opinion, but since you aren't getting many responses, here's what Vancouver Magazine's 18th annual restaurant review issue says:

Vancouver Magazine wrote:In a tight race for beefly (and pulled pork) supremacy this year, Gold medalist Gotham wins for confident and mature service in an elegant room that’s always fun, while serving only the best cuts of Canada AAA and U.S. Prime with side dishes that are elevated above the steakhouse norm. The bar is a convivial roustabout of strong drinks, well-made under Shannon Belkin’s soaring murals. Morton’s (Silver) was noted for the city’s best happy hour—“those mini fillet-mignon sandwiches are the manliest of canapésâ€￾—and Jurassic-sized steaks and potatoes that make a happy next-day lunch. Hy’s (Bronze), another David Aisenstat steakhouse (Gotham and The Keg are all part of the family), remains as popular as ever for its tableside Caesar salads, and its under-the-table drinks.

I've had success with their reviews before.

Thanks, Puck. We're going to go to Hy's. I haven't been for like 25 years, but my customer chose it. I think it's probably the best value for the money, too. Plus a restaurant that's been around for over 5 years is probably the better choice anyway.

Dammit!

I now have this insatiable desire for Prime Rib at Gothams.
