Chickened out of eating at El Gaucho and went to Morton's. Prices are much kinder at Morton's which is not to say cheap. You always know what you get.
Higgins- missed the lunch hour and had lunch in the "bar". Burger okay, open-faced pastrami okay, smoked seafood salad okay. Really just okay, which is not a great recommendation.
Heathman- dinner Grilled goatcheese (okay), duck salad (good), celery root salad (boring)
Tuna (good), Duck (very good), risotto (abysmal- crunchy not creamy) Waiter kind of odd.
A bit impressed with himself.
