Bad news for steak lovers: Morton's the Steakhouse has shuttered its Hartford location, the only one in Connecticut.
The popular restaurant at State House Square served its last meal on New Year's Eve. Company executives cite changing times as the cause of the closure, but said they're exploring their options and would consider opening another location in the state.
“Morton's The Steakhouse in Hartford closed its doors on Wednesday, December 31. Due to a shift in market demographics over the last 15 years, we decided it made sense to close the present location and review new potential sites within the area,” Tim Whitlock, senior vice president of operations for Mortons, said in a statement Friday. “We are grateful for the support we received from the community and encourage our guests to visit us at any of our other nationwide locations.”
Representatives from the company said Hartford employees were notified in advance.
Morton’s locations remain open in several areas of the country, including Boston and New York.
