Annapolis Steakhouse Abruptly Closes

Monday evening when the employees of Morton’s The Steakhouse reported for work in at the upscale Park Place in  Annapolis they were greeted by locked doors and a terse message in the windows.

We regret to announce the closing of Morton’s in Annapolis.
Thank you for your business.
The management & staff of Mortons in Annapolis

The upscale restaurant was one of the anchor tenants at Park Place. All exterior signs were removed from the building and any mention of the location was removed from the corporate website.

This is yet one more closing of a much needed business in Annapolis and yet another sign of how deep the current recession is reaching.  With 76 restaurants worldwide, Morton’s apparently does not feel secure enough to keep the Annapolis location in operation.

This is the latest of many restaurant closings in Annapolis including Northwoods, Phillips Seafood, and just the other day, The Mexican Cafe.
