One Steakhouse Founded by Morton Brothers – A 1200 Degree Success!  With Hindsight, Leal Vineyards, Far Niente and Trinchero Wines.

Posted on

One Steakhouse was founded by brothers Michael Morton and David Morton who are known as the “first family” of steakhouses founded by Arnie Morton.  They are located inside the Las Vegas luxury property of Virgin Hotels.

Our foursome actually ate here twice: our first evening and our last evening in town.  So for the record, the pictures are from two meals!!  One of the keys to tasty steaks is cooking them at 1200 degrees! They are able to sear them on the outside while having them perfectly medium to medium rare on the inside!

The chilled Hamachi slices that were citrus cured and served with sweetie drop pepper puree and jalapeno sauce were scrumptious.

One of the key reasons for the second visit was the Charred Spanish Octopus cooked in port wine. The size and tenderness of the dish was spectacular. We even got the chef to clue us in on how he prepared and cooked the octopus to be so tender!

The Heirloom Tomato and Burrata with aged balsamic, arugula pesto and spicy almonds was again an amazing dish.

The 6 ounce filet mignon could be cut with your fork and was extremely tender.

On one evening I ordered the Diver Sea Scallops prepared with celery root, trumpet mushrooms and herb butter. These were almost sweet and very savory.

Wines consumed during the two meals included a 2014 Trinchero BRV Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley, 2015 Leal Vineyards Cabernet Franc, 2017 Hindsight Cabernet Sauvignon from Howell Mountain and a 2019 Far Niente Chardonnay.  Each and every one a perfect match for the steaks to be consumed and the Hamachi fish. Steaks ranged from a split Rib Eye to Filet Mignon. Each morsel so tender it could be cut with a fork!

The Wine Director, Anthony Ramirez was charming and accommodating in our discussion of the entrees and wines for the evening.

Two very pricy meals, but what a rare treat while vacationing in Las Vegas! A great start and a perfect finish for the week.

Sláinte,

Michael
