That steakhouse going into the Hard Rock Hotel from Michael and David Morton now has a new name. Despite original paperwork referring to the restaurant as Crown Steakhouse, the brothers now plan to call their place MB Steak, with the “MB” portion of the name referring to the Morton brothers.

The restaurant plans to open in May, paying tribute to the Morton family tradition of steakhouses. After all, their father Arnie Morton opened Morton’s of Chicago in 1978. He sold his restaurant in the late 1980. This marks the first time the brothers have partnered on a project despite more than two dozen restaurants to their names.

Locally, Michael Morton was behind Palms restaurants and nightclubs such as N9NE Steakhouse, Ghostbar, Rain Nightclub, Nove Italiano and Moon Nightclub. In 2010, he opened La Cave Wine & Food Hideaway at Wynn Las Vegas with his wife Jenna Morton, who followed that up with La Comida in Fremont East. Their latest restaurant, Crush, is at the MGM Grand.

MB Steak, opening in the HRH Tower, has an estimated construction budget of $4.5 million. Once opened, 35 Steaks & Martinis at the resort shutters.
