Restaurant Deathwatch PDX: Ruth's Chris and Morton's
The death of high end dining in Portland? Hot on the heels of the Titanic-like dining disaster that was Lucier, a well placed source has told me that come January both Ruth's Chris and Morton's, those bastions of expense account dinners, are about to shut their doors sometime in January. Not only is the upper tier (cost-wise) always affected most when the economy is circling the drain, but when businesses are cutting back...drastically...how many $75 steak dinners can be justified to the accounting department?
