We created a list of 30 things to do before we turn 30. Micah is less than a year older than Margaret, so we are basing it on when Margaret turns 30. Our list consists of a wide range of activities including visiting a fancy steak house. Neither of us had ever been to a nice steak restaurant and felt it was one of those things we must experience. We planned in advance (since steak restaurants can be quite pricey) and discovered that Morton’s The Steakhouse was going to be a part of Atlanta restaurant week-excellent! For those who don’t know, restaurant weeks are amazing because they are a great way to try different cuisine and local restaurants (plus cheaper prices). Restaurant weeks usually consist of several restaurants in a neighborhood or city that offer special menus that are limited, but often several courses, and at a discounted price.

Morton’s is located in the heart of downtown Atlanta, providing you with the ultimate city experience. Due to it’s popularity make sure you check availability, and we recommend booking a table in advance. Morton’s is located near the CNN Center, Georgia Aquarium, and Max Lager’s Wood-Fired Grill and Brewery.  For restaurant week, the menu consisted of a few options, and we had bread, salad, steak with potatoes (that were amazing), and dessert. Everything was tasty, and the atmosphere was a classic portrayal of a steak house with dimmed lights, large chairs, and sleek white tablecloths. Overall, our first steak house experience was good, and we agreed an excellent bucket list item.

Side Note: Ironically, the next weekend after we visited Morton’s, we were in Memphis for a wedding, and the rehearsal dinner was actually at an upscale steakhouse in Memphis, so we could have just waited a week, but Morton’s was worth it.

Additional Side Note: Morton’s is a chain.
