Leaving in ’18: Morton’s the Steakhouse

According to the property owner of the complex, Georgetown Court at 3251 Prospect St. NW, as well as a real estate agency, Morton’s, the upscale steak restaurant, will depart its Georgetown location during the first half of next year. Morton’s has been on Prospect Street for almost three decades. Connor McCarthy of Miller Walker Retail Real Estate said the 7,000-square-foot retail-restaurant space will be available in the spring of 2018 and has advertised as such. Morton’s has not yet responded to inquiries from The Georgetowner.

Recent notable restaurant closings include the following:

Out: Daily Grill at Georgetown Inn

The Daily Grill restaurant at the Georgetown Inn at 1310 Wisconsin Ave. NW closed Sunday, Dec. 17 — abruptly posting on social media: “Thank you to all our loyal guests and the Georgetown community for your support for 18 great years.” A national chain, the Daily Grill has other nearby locations at 18th and M Streets NW and in Bethesda, Maryland. A new restaurant is expected to open in January at the ground floor of the Georgetown Inn. Its name has not been released.

Out: Unum Exits the Pluribus on M Street

Georgetown’s hip, high-end and eclectic “Cheers” restaurant at 2917 M St. NW served its last meal Saturday, Dec. 16. For six years, helmed by chef Phillip Blane, who arrived from Equinox and points beyond, Unum lived up to its name and gastronomical ambitions. See earlier story in The Georgetowner.
