I had a similar experience some months ago. A good strategy, if you're at Morton's and on your own dime, is to fine the best wine they offer by the glass and order a bottle. Apparently their policy is to charge the bottle out at 4x the "by the glass" price, which often translates to a pretty good deal.

Otherwise, their prices are pretty lousy.

I remembered reading of PH's Mortons expieience previously...So, when I recently found a Mortons restaurant while in Greenwich, Conn. I scanned the by the glass list, but alas, no Beringers or equivilent values...

After reviewing the rest of the wine list; I recall lamenting that I did not still have my Manhattan wine shop purchase in the car...That is some absurdly inflated wine list.

I wound up w/Cornerstone cab (by the glass) to accompany my filet of beef.
Next time I'll try a different steakhouse...and perhaps not leave my wine back at the hotel.
