My husband’s birthday and my birthday are 2 days apart so since we started dating, we’ve always been celebrating our birthdays together, making it special for the both of us. This year is no different. We decided to go to Morton’s The Steakhouse in Hackensack, New Jersey because we were both craving for some juicy steak.
Before we head over to Morton’s The Steakhouse, I dragged my husband to Van Saun Park in Paramus, New Jersey for a quick portrait session. Most parents don’t have many photographs of just the two of them so I wanted to make sure we have that. Plus we were all dressed up so it was the perfect time to do it. Luckily the flowers were fully bloomed so it created a perfect backdrop.
We drove to Morton’s The Steakhouse in The Shops at Riverside located in Hackensack, New Jersey. We walked up to the restaurant and were seated immediately. It was early lunch time during weekday so there was no wait.
Our waitress greeted us and took our drinks order. Then she came back and told us about their specials, which sounds amazing for a great price. Their special for that day was a 3 course meal (salad, steak with a choice of seafood dish, a side and dessert). I ordered the Morton’s house salad, Chicago style prime bone-in ribeye steak with bacon wrapped scallops, sautéed brussels sprouts, and crème brulee. My husband ordered the Caesar salad, Filet Mignon with crab cake, truffle fries, and bread pudding with vanilla ice cream.
We didn't have to wait long until the food started to arrive at our table. Each course was so delicious and the portion was just right. The steak was juicy and melts in your mouth. The truffle fries was sooooo good, I practically ate the whole thing and that was my husband’s side dish.
We mentioned to the waitress that we were celebrating our birthdays by having lunch here. She went and grabbed their camera and took a picture of us. By the end of our lunch, she presented us with not one but two printed photographs, slipped into an embossed photograph holder with the restaurant’s logo and hand written birthday wish for the two of us. It was such a sweet gesture!
Overall our experience at the Morton’s The Steakhouse was excellent and the food was delicious! What a great way to celebrate our birthdays!
