Developer: Never Mind About Morton's -- Downtown Brooklyn 'On Fire'

By now local carnivores have discovered that Morton's Steakhouse in Downtown Brooklyn has abruptly closed, but not to worry, landlord Muss Development told the Brooklyn Daily Eagle Thursday.

A spokesperson for Muss told the Eagle late Thursday that in the previous 24 hours, Muss had received a dozen calls from interested restaurants.

“I’m not surprised at this. It shouldn’t be hard to fill. There is so much intense interest in that whole strip,” the spokesperson said, noting the recent announcements that Sugar and Plumm and American BBQ and Beer have signed leases at 345 Adams, St., joining Panera Bread, which is expected to open in the next couple of months.

Question: Did Morton's give advance notice to members of Brooklyn's high society who kept their personal bottles in the restaurant's private wine cellar before they closed? (Like Bruce Ratner's, shown left.)
